PHOTOS: Springtime is beautiful in Parkes

The Parkes region has been bathed in beauty as the warmer temperatures signal the start of Spring.

The weather has been a welcoming respite from the cold winter temperatures; with birds chirping, snakes slithering and flowers blooming.

According to the Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment (ABARES) September crop report, seasonal conditions in New South Wales have been excellent this season with above to very much above average rainfall from March to August in nearly all winter cropping regions.

The Parkes region has definitely gone above the average rainfall, leading to high levels of soil moisture to end winter.

This means favourable spring rainfall will likely result in significantly above average winter crop yields.

According to the latest three-month rainfall outlook (September to November), issued by the Bureau of Meteorology on September 3, spring rainfall is very likely to be above average in all cropping regions in New South Wales.
