Wool desk report
This issue of Wool Desk report contains the results of the March 2002 Western Australian Wool Production Survey, and an experimental series of monthly forecasts of average fibre diameters and staple lengths for the Western Australian clip. It is anticipated that this information will supplement and enhance the current weight forecast information.
The Western Australia Wool Production Surveys are conducted each March and September and the information collected is essential for planning supply requirements into the state raw wool markets, and planning buying patterns by traders and wool processors.
