Crop Inspection

Farmer Phil and I drove around the paddocks yesterday to look at how the crops are progressing. We recorded 70mm of rain for the month of June which has given the crops a great start for a good year, hopefully! The wheat below was sown on May 12th and is just getting going nicely.

This canola crop was the first paddock sown for the year on April 27th. As you can see it's cabbaged up well and is already showing some flower heads. We sow all our crops on 12 inch row spacings, so you can see how much the canola has grown in 9 weeks - the bare dirt between the rows can't be seen.
