Crop Update

The canola is flowering it's heart out at present, so we need some decent Spring rain to make it fill to it's full potential. We had about 4mm of rain today, which is nowhere near enough. This area should have received 360mm of rain to date for the year - we've just made it to 206mm! Barely more than half the average rainfall! The crops are in not bad shape considering this.

The wheat is a nice, lush dark green. The seed head is about 1/3 the way up the stem, so the head should poke out in another few weeks. Same story for the wheat as the canola needing decent Spring rain to live up to it's potential.
