The NSW Drought Package in More Detail

CURRENT SITUATION

What are the current conditions facing NSW farmers, their families and rural communities? 

Drought has been a constant and inevitable feature of the NSW landscape. Approximately half the state is in drought or conditions fast approaching drought. Some of the worst hit areas are the Hunter, Central Tablelands, Central West and in the Far West of the state.

Producers are now at a critical decision point, they need to either get winter sowing underway in earnest or choose when to de-stock and by how much. Pastures are greatly diminished, soil moisture is low and agronomic conditions in general are poor.
