well i spent all weekend justy looking all over the farm and went for a drive around the district and checked out a lot of wheat crops. Its pretty desperate. Although suprisingly the wheat looking pretty good. Double cropped stuff isnt too good but our best wheat should yeild 1.5t/acre. We have only had 2 inches of incrop rainfall so it should do alright....we planted cotton 2 weeks ago but were in the nuts with it. Its planted on last years corn ground and is very patchy. The emergence is terrible. Not many farmers have planted sorghum. A few have planted dry but its pretty average and not coming up too well. Lets just hope the storms come this week. Should be starting harvestest on Wednesday. Our chickpeas arent too bad since there double cropped and they should go about .5t/acre. Its good all considering....but yeah he is a few pics...not all of them are of our wheat.

Neighbours barley which was double cropped onto corn ground






Our wheat (some of it is durum and bread wheat)

Loving the photos, and some of those crops look good. A few barley shots look like they are laid, maybe from wind or rain if your lucky enough?

Also that first combine shop is excellent, it has alot of character, detail and again character. Well done Smile

thanks mate. That barley has has only 1 inch of rainfall on it since it was planted. Though we have had horrible winds the past few weeks. Thats probably why
