Earlier sown crops are fast approaching the finishing line with only a good rain needed to cement what appears to be healthy yield potential at this stage.
As is usually the case we are seeing a large difference between the early sown crops and those sown 2 to 4 weeks later.
Later sown crops still have a way to go and are very much in need of a good rain if they are to amount to anything above average.
Crops conditions have continued to improve across the Horsham zone, with good winter rainfall being received for June, July & August.
Some areas west of Horsham to the South Australian border have received record falls, which has led to waterlogging of some crops.
Scope barley appears to be the talk of the town with many hectares being sown on account of the high chemical residue from the 12/13 season at the time of cropping.
All in all, we are currently on track another good harvest though out Victoria if we are able to get a favourable spring.
