More rain needed

By Country News

Despite some rain being recorded across the region at the weekend, the figures will still leave farmers wanting more.

In Victoria, Shepparton only recorded 2mm, Kyabram 2.4mm, Yarrawonga 1.8mm, Benalla 4.9mm and Mangalore 4.4mm — despite heavy falls at times on Friday.

In NSW, Tocumwal recorded 0.6mm, Deniliquin 2.4mm and 9.6mm was recorded at Hume Reservoir.

More showers are expected in the coming week for north-east Victoria and the Riverina region.
