Dec. 6 (Bloomberg) -- About a quarter of Australia’s winter-crop harvest, which includes wheat, barley and canola, is complete, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Foreign Agricultural Service said in a report posted today on its website.

In Western Australia, where crops are suffering from drought, the harvest is half complete, the agency said. The state of Queensland is also about half compete, New South Wales has finished one-third of its harvest, and Victoria “is yet to start in earnest,” the USDA unit said. The harvest in eastern areas has slowed because of above-average rainfall.
