FORECAST COMES UP DRY
Last week’s rainfall was a welcome change for Central Highlands growers but it was far from the 100 millimetres predicted. Emerald recorded 25mm, Rolleston 16mm and Springsure 20mm on Friday and Saturday. A section of the Central Highlands is part of the 75.5 percent of the State that is officially in drought. Queensland’s south east corner is the latest region to be drought declared.
