Wet Spring 2022

With over 100% soil moisture, flooding and continual rain top ups so late in the season, is throwing curve balls at farmers across the nation.

Alot of issues that have occurred with this unusual season High Rainfall Zone farmers are a custom too.  However, as the rain keeps falling we are all thinking of plans B to Z for our farming system.
