Patchy rain has no impact on producers' problems
STORMS passing across parts of the North Burnett on Monday and Tuesday seemed like a good sign for producers waiting out the dry spell.
But the weather event brought patchy rain, and not enough to undo months of damage from the dry.
Coalstoun Lakes farmer Steve Marshall recorded 50mm of rain at his home, but only 8mm at his paddock down the road.
"Even though the rain we got at home is pretty positive for us, the unevenness is still a problem for producers," he said.
Mr Marshall said producers had begun spraying off failed crops this week, after a very dry January.
The patchy rainfall also meant that the Bureau of Meteorology's observations don't give an accurate representation of rainfall for entire towns.
For Biggenden, 25mm north-east of Coalstoun Lakes, just three millimetres was recorded by BOM.
Mulgildie grazier Amanda Goody said just three millimetres fell on her property, while BOM recorded 26mm for Monto.
