|Gippsland Sorghum Harvest|
Sunday, April 15, 2012
This post should have been done 6 months ago, but here goes anyway. Winter has been very wet, and we haven't been able to get on paddocks until September. We finished up sowing 2300 acres in early September to canola, barley and wheat. There was 270 acres sown to canola in June and 570 acres left fallow for summer crops. After the spring crops were sown we harvested the sorghum which has been ready for four months. The photo below is my brothers crop. The patch in front of the header is not representive of the paddock. A lot of stalks have fallen over and we've probably lost half the yield.
