wheat exports in 1985-1990

Sample Answer

The graph shows the variation in the amount of wheat exported in three countries over a period of five years i.e. 1985-1990.

Initially, in the year 1985, there wasn’t a major difference in the exports among the three countries, with Australia having 15 million tonnes wheat exported, while Canada and European Community exported approximately 18 and 20 million tonnes respectively.

For the next four years i.e 1986 to 1989, Canada experienced its highest wheat export in the year 1988 at 25 million tonnes and lowest peak of overseas sales when it dropped down to 15 million tonnes in 1989. During this period, Australia witnessed a gradual decrease from 15 million tonnes to 10 million tonnes. However, in contrast,  European Community after hitting  its lowest point in 1986 saw an increase in the amount of wheat brought to Europe in 1987 which remained constant until 1988.

Finally, in the year 1990, Canada and European Community exported 12 million tonnes of grain marking a gradual increase in their wheat trade. On the other hand, figures remained constant for Australia.

Overall, Australia observed a decline in its wheat export while the European Community witnessed an opposite trend. In contrast, there were major fluctuations in the wheat export in Canada.
