FARMERS rejoiced across the Wimmera at the weekend as timely rain broke a dry spell.
Green Lake farmer Glen Mibus recorded 12 millimetres of rain at his property.
Mr Mibus said "anything was good" after Horsham recorded its driest July since 1997.
Minyip's Ryan Milgate said he was "stoked" to record 20 millimetres at his farm.
"We're rapt at the moment," he said.
"I don't think you would find too many upset guys around the Wimmera.
"To have it now is really timely - what we've had so far in August has been pretty mild, cold and a lot of frosts.
"It was a crucial time over the next couple of weeks, so to have it now is great."
Mr Milgate also hoped there was more to come later this week.
"We had rain Friday, it was a bit miserable on Saturday, then Sunday and Monday were really nice days. So if we get a bit more rain later this week, that's just what the doctor ordered," he said.
"It's just about perfect for the moment. That's probably bought us a ticket well into September now, but there's a long way to go."
More rain seems to have fallen in the northern regions, with Beulah farmer Ross Williams recording 23 millimetres.
Mr Williams said it was crucial rain.
"I'm very happy today," he said.
"It was very important. With all these huge frosts that we've been having, you wouldn't be sure how it was going to go.
"This will help make sure we get crops on all of it. Some of the later crops might not have made it if it didn't rain."
Further west however copped a more muted downpour.
Kaniva farmer Sam Eastwood recorded 11 millimetres.
"It was a little bit less kind of south-west of Kaniva, around nine down, there so the average was about 10 millimetres around here," he said.
Mr Eastwood said missing out on rain had been a common occurrence this year, and it could affect yields in his area.
"We're on the edge of it out here," he said.
"Those systems that have been coming down from the north, Horsham has been getting them a bit but Kaniva has been missing out; only getting sort of half the totals of some other places.
"That's sort of been consistent all year.
"It's just going to check our yield potentials. We're just going to see a bit less than the rest of the Wimmera, I'd say.
"It was very timely to get some, but we need some more too."
