Rains may have cut as much as half of the wheat crop to feed-quality in Victoria, Australia’s third-largest producing state, an agricultural department manager said today.

Wet weather likely downgraded 30 percent to 50 percent of the state’s wheat, while yields may be cut by 10 percent after storms last week flattened some crops, Chris Sounness, grains project manager at the Department of Primary Industries in Horsham, Victoria, said today by phone.
