This outlook incorporates current soil water conditions and the seasonal rainfall outlook based on the southern oscillation index. However, some variation exists among regions. Specifically, most parts of SWQ have yield outcomes ranked in the bottom 10% of all years, whereas most parts of CQ and SEQ have yield outcomes ranked in the 20th to 40th percentiles. Widespread above average rainfall is needed during the next month to improve the current below average outlook, especially in those areas with late planted winter cops.
