Farming IMPACT

In contrast to last week when we had very little rainfall, the week ahead will be cool and unsettled with rainfall around normal, or a bit above in midland and western areas and temperatures below normal by 1C to 2C. Sunshine will vary, but will probably be slightly below average and soils moisture deficits should reduce through the week.
