Despite the picture showing a healthy crop, this crop and others will soon need some rain. It's been said that the weather patterns are akin to 2007. Not quite yet! Where we are drilling currently, in 2007 we were drilling another 2 inches deeper. Those crops that have got established have got good root structure and are continuing to draw moisture, but rain will be imperative to allow them to continue to grow and produce a good crop. Plant stands are good and there are only odd pockets of pigeon damage, so with sensible rain there is a good potential. Without rain things will not be so good.
