ProductionWise Crop Update August 2015


“Earlier in the season yield forecasts were being negatively affected by the falling Southern Oscillation Index (SOI). As we progress into August rainfall has continued to be received above expectations in most of the south eastern cropping belt locations. This has resulted in many growers top dressing to meet the new potential yield forecast.”
