Rain Expected

The weather forecast says that we are to get rain for the next three days so Farmer Phil is madly spreading urea on the crops so that the rain will wash the fertiliser into the soil and give the new plants a boost.

He spreads the urea at 24kph so that means he gets over a lot of acres in a day - 800ac done in about 6 hours yesterday.

The spreader flings the urea over 30m so while taking this photo I was getting peppered with little white beads!

Glad you have rain on the horizon. We are now so wet that we can't finish our urea spreading as currently can't get on the paddocks.... Hope you get yours done in time.
