recognition of South

Mr Piccolo acknowledged
the work of the Gawler
Show Society and the
volunteers who organise
and assist with the event
"I am not sure about
other parts of the state, but,
certainly, in Gawler, the
local service clubs do a really
great job in helping out and
providing the manpower
to make sure the show goes
ahead," he said.
"One of the sad things we
see as we go through rural

of shows, which is really

South Australia is anticipating a
bumper crop for South Australian
Its latest Crop and Pasture Report,
released last week, estimates more
than 7.9 million tonnes of grain crops
will be produced this season due to
favourable weather conditions.
The report stated temperatures in
the Lower North region were one to
three degrees above average through-
out May and "near average" for June.
"There are high levels of stored soil
moisture across the whole district
with above-average yield potential in
most crops," the report stated.
Freeling's Mark Schuster said rain-
fall has been ideal throughout the
region but frost was posing a risk to
"Around here we're all right...but
anywhere it's coming to head early
and getting all these bad frosts...there
won't be too much grain," he said.
Mr Schuster said if conditions re-
mained favourable, there was poten-
tial for a bumper harvest.
However, despite the above-average
yields, farmers could be looking at re-
duced returns with grain prices falling
Mr Schuster said prices have been
"It did kick back up a little bit last
week but not very much," he said.
Mr Schuster said last week wheat
prices were hovering at around $260
a tonne, but he believed good yields
could even out the lower prices.
Mr Schuster, who grows wheat,
barley and hay, said he had hope for
a good year.
"There's potential but it's still a
little bit too early to say it's in the bag
yet," he said.
Meanwhile, the Crop and Pasture
Report has also stated that the Lower
North has seen a rapid build-up of
aphids in early-sown canola crops.
"...despite being sprayed with rec-
ommended rates of insecticides, green
peach aphids survived and have trans-
mitted beet western yellows virus,
severely damaging crops," the report
Mallala, Owen and Tarlee were
among the worst-affected areas in the
