2014 planting season draws to an end

With the field days upon us it usually means the end of the planting season for me. Pretty well finished bar a few trees (30000) to be planted up in Geraldton on the main highway. Season was good both volume wise and weather wise with good rains falling at strategic times.
Top pic some 15000 salt bush planted north of Bencubbin, good weed control and early site prep and we have a 95% strike rate to date (last week) with no rainfall to speak of since planting (no double digit recording since planting in June)
Bottom Low area near Lake king once again good weed control with little regermination of rye grass which is always an issue in low lying zones
