Arable crops destroyed by bad weather

16th February 2022 By Staff Reporter | news@foodticker.co.nz | @foodtickernz

Three weeks of heavy rain has caused widespread damage to arable crops – with some farmers calling it the “worst harvest season in living memory.”

Federated Farmers’ arable chairperson Colin Hurst said wheat crops were turning black in mid and north Canterbury and there was likely to be a shortage of good quality grain to turn into flour.

He said up to half – and in some cases all pea crops have been ruined in Canterbury and Wairarapa.
