Moderated Rainfall removes the Rainfall Deficiency for Wimmera, Victoria

During the pre-announced two month Weather Moderation demonstration for future cereal cropping applications, the Miles Research team ran a series of rainfall "adjustments" which provided more rainfall than predicted for northwestern Victoria.

As a result of the July and August rains, the Rainfall Deficiency chart produced by the Bureau at the end of August presents ZERO RAINFALL DEFICIENCY across the Wimmera.
