ABC news late last night on the TV actually mentioned the drought briefly and the whole crop reduction thing.
A couple of comments from cockies at Orange NSW. What............? Think there’s mainly cows there.......... how bout get out on the north west plains and have a chat with someone.

Some expert says WA will only have just an average harvest this they won’t be sharing their grain with the East Coast this time.........

Thumbs up ABC for trying.


Square box........
Round pizza.......
Triangle pieces....

Iam confused......

Quite a few areas of WA got frosted last week. Even where we are on the South coast the ones that went in real early have been caned. One guy is advertising a potential 3.5t/ha barley crop to be cut for hay. I have a near neighbour with an early sown wheat crop that has been smoked. Its all the early sown crops with big yield potential that have been stuffed.

I was in WA last week and at Esperance the day before the frost hit. Our group was surprised how dry WA is with only a small area that we saw was wet.
I'm lucky to be in a small area that is still OK. Light frosts the last 2 nights with crops flowering. Time will tell .

Russia does seem in the drivers seat now. All those years of sending teams over to "help" them learn to farm in the 90s are coming back to haunt us. No good deed goes unpunished I guess. Also, have a friend at CBOT and he says the speculators have decided it's a bear market and almost nothing is going to move them from that. Long term trends will be down despite short term rallies. What a job this has become, where well fed politicians and hedge fund managers decide our fate every year. Makes me hate this sometimes.

2 comments I live in a frosty area agros push push push earlier sowing. All good as long as you set up for hay. We have some paddocks will not get sown till last week in May. Some guys sowing cereals 10th of April just way to early for sceptre wheat etc.

Hedge funds yeah pisses you off when price of grain moves for reason which have nothing to do with price of grain. Depends on there long and short positions and profit taking. Every Aussie farmer knows there will be another cut in estimates.

Read last night a guy in 700mm zone in nsw has had 78mm thus far fo year that’s the biggest extreme I’ve heard in oz this year.
