WITH GALLERY: It's been dry in other parts of the country, but the tap has definitely been turned on in the southern Wimmera.

There is a desperate need for rain in southern Queensland and northern NSW, but farmers in the Wimmera are now politely asking for the tap to be turned off.

Over 40mm has fallen for August and combined with a wet July and good carry-over subsoil moisture the ground is now saturated.

While there will be some crop damage at this stage most growers are optimistic high yields in good parts of the paddock will outweigh waterlogging losses.
