Image 1-4 below supplied by Ryan Willing, 24/5/22 Condingup.

1: Illabo wheat seeded 18/4 into minimal moisture. At time of photo is was quite dry at this farm on Savage Road. Plan to gaze mid-June.


2: Planet Barley seeded 24/4 on the same farm.


3: Completely different story out the eastern end, very wet after the huge rainfall event mid-April, this is my pasture mix on deep non wetting sand. Grass / cereals looking amazing but legumes are poor.


4: Unfortunately the rain event took out 80% of my pasture mix due to burst seed, so had to be reseeded 14/5.
