The season is precariously placed along the border region with many requiring significant falls to guarantee crops, according to the latest Herron Todd White rural report.

The valuation firm stated, historical management and resulting soil condition has never been more evident than the current season with paddocks either side of some roads showing substantially different vigour and harvest potential reflecting the organic matter content, sowing times and general management practices.

As one farmer in the Riverina said in the second week of August “if we don’t get rain in the next two weeks, the crop will be finished”.

Valuer David Leeds concludes by noting "a sharp rise in allocation water prices will be likewise creating some difficult decisions for those with irrigation development weighing up the likely final commodity prices with the opportunity cost of irrigating versus selling their allocation on the market."
