AN autumn break has come with more than an inch of rain recorded across the district over the past two days.
The belated break started on Wednesday night and has croppers gearing up to sow pasture after the sixth worst two-season (spring/summer) dry spell in history.
There have only been four rain days since December 21 and the recent rain equalled that three-month accumulative total.
Some 23.6mm was recorded by the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) until noon yesterday with higher totals being recorded across the district.
Bob Falconer at Moyhu got 32mm until noon yesterday, which will set up for the planting of oats across 20 acres.
