Many growers were unprepared for the onslaught of 2022, which was one of the wettest cropping seasons on record for much of eastern Australia. Even those in high-rainfall zones who are accustomed to dealing with saturated soils and waterlogged crops were caught out by the intensity, extent and duration of flooding.
