There has been a little bit of rain around this week in central NSW up to the Darling Downs but only enough to settle the dust with 3-6mm recorded. It may help fill in the un-germinated patches where people have dry sown and freshen up what’s out of the ground, but without follow up rain within the next two weeks we will be back on a knifes edge. Growers are still holding hope something will fall this month and planting can continue. It’s late, but history has shown we can still grow a crop if there is a kind spring.
We are still at a standstill for sowing activity. There may be a little bit of spraying required on fallow country after two small falls, but outside of that there is not much diesel being burnt.
Markets were down in front of the last rain forecast but quickly recovered lost ground once the falls were noted less than first expected.
