Barley progressing nicely and Chickpeas not too bad

This year we are growing the malt barley variety commander. This photo was taken 26th July 2012. We had 60mm of rain for July. This crop was planted 14-05-2012.

These ‘hat-trick’ chickpeas were planted 16-05-2012 into a paddock that has never had peas before. Despite a wet May and June are doing OK. Note water drainage in wheel tracks. Photo taken 26-07-2012.
