With recent rainfall late in 2014 and good follow up falls in January the outlook for 2015 is looking far more promising than in previous years. There are some very good crops of sorghum and corn on the Inner Darling Downs. There are also some great crops on the Western Downs who have benefited from substantial rainfall in the past few months. Be aware and on the lookout for insect pests in crops. These include Plague Locusts, Midge in sorghum, Aphids and Heliothis in Mung Beans.
