And it's not over yet. Nothings in a bale nor a silo....My canola has 6 inches of water on it in places. Agronomist says it's not all bad now as if it kills the plant it would be a good thing. Not a chance in hell I'd be stupid enough to windrow anything atm. Better standing in water than laying in it.

It's bad just to our north on all that floodplain country along the Billabong creek. lots of crops written off. water stretching for kilometers. Was at Walbunderie today . Creek was back down, but you could see the trash 4 to 5 m up in the trees. All that's still heading down stream.

Sorry for your struggles with mother nature. Where we are on rolling land when we had 2 years of record rains fields with low pockets became ponds and took a couple more years to get back in production. Fields had prevent planting but a lot of it dried late in the season and some kind of forage got planted on them. The ones that really had it bad was the people along the Mississippi river and large tributaries where levies
breeched and the land was covered in feet of sand. That landscape will be changed forever.
