  2. This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](https://www.reuters.com/article/australia-wheat/update-1-australia-says-2019-20-wheat-harvest-drops-to-lowest-in-12-years-idUSL4N2AI1RS) reduced by 77%. (I’m a bot)

    > SYDNEY, Feb 18 – Australia said on Tuesday its 2019/2020 wheat harvest was the lowest in 12 years, missing its forecast, as a severe drought across the east coast wilted crops.

    > Australia's chief commodity forecaster said in December it expected wheat production during the 2019/2020 season to total 15.85 million tonnes.

    > With harvesting now complete, the Australian Bureau of Agricultural and Resource Economics and Sciences said production totalled 15.17 million tonnes – the lowest since 2008.
