Record rainfall for South Australia's Upper NorthAnnabelle Homer, Thursday June 27, 2013 - 16:34 EST
Parts of South Australia's Upper North has received record rainfall for the month of June.
Booleroo Centre has received 200 millimetres so far this year, 130 mm of that falling in one month.
The previous record was 105 millimetres for the month of June.
Some farmers say they've never experienced such a wet June in their lifetime and are confident this season will produce above-average crops.
Farmer Joe Koch says this rain has set them up for the rest of the season even if they don't have a wet spring.
"If we don't get any rain in spring, the crops will pinch off but at this stage we're looking at average and definitely better even if we get below average rainfall from now on."
Northern Ag agronomist Phil Green says while farmers are pretty happy with the rain, they're starting to get itchy feet.
"The good rain we've had has made the paddocks pretty wet and not trafficable so we're already getting some enquiries about aerial spreading of urea, and people are getting concerned about not being able to get onto their paddocks to spray."
