Weather update

Our spring sowing campaign is now complete and we have had plenty of moisture to help things along. We are also seeing a higher level of weeds as a result but you can’t have it both ways.

There are still people out and about with large drills, AKA big farms and agri-businesses rather than small scale local farmers, who are still planting maize. This doesn’t surprise me as a) we have had a reasonable amount of rain recently and that will have slowed up drilling operations a bit and b) everyone is dead keen on maize this year and are planting more of the crop.

Weather conditions continue to remain fair with showers and sunshine just about everywhere with it being wetter in the west than the east. The forecast is more of the same for the rest of the week.
