Cotton farming is grown in the region. Areas that grow cotton need to receive between 400 and 800mm of rainfall in the summer to help the crops grow during the growing season. Australia is a relatively minor producer on a global scale but is the world’s third largest exporter which is significant. In an average year, the growers of Australia produce enough cotton to clothe approximately 500 Million people.
