Too much rain for Kangaroo Island farmers.Annabelle Homer, Tuesday June 25, 2013 - 12:14 EST
Most farmers across parts of South Australia would be happy with the latest weekend falls, but not so much on Kangaroo Island.
Some farmers say its the wettest June they've ever experienced to the point some won't be able to finish seeding.
Elders agronomist Jenny Stanton says it's the wettest June she's ever encountered.
"Kingscote normally averages around 64 millimetres for the month of June, and already we're up to 125 millimetres," she said.
"We had a big rain event on the 11th of June, one farmer in the south east of the Island had 180 millimetres in a 24 hour period, and we've just had another 50 millimetres over the weekend, so it's very wet."
Ben Pontefix, a farmer from Vivonne Bay has been inundated with rain to the point he's not sure if he'll complete his seeding program.
"We've easily received over 200 millimetres this month which is causing us a few dramas," he said.
"We still have our wettest month to come historically, we hope it won't this year but if it keeps going like it is, we're not missing too many at the moment."
