Crops across the northern Wimmera have benefitted from a welcome soaking, from the weekend's frontal system, which brought falls of up to 20 millimetres of rain.
Narelle Drage, of Lah and Brim East, said they ended up with 21mm of rain on the weekend.
"The crops are looking okay, not bumper, but not a disaster, either," Ms Drage said.
Husband David had been spreading urea and shifting sheep around, to spread the feed out.
"It was quite dry and the drink of rain was very much appreciated," she said.
Matt Rohde, Lorquon and Jeparit, said the area had received about 14-16mm of rain, which had freshened things up.
He said he had carried out a second grass spray, on his chickpeas, ahead of more showers.
"We made a last minute decision to put some urea out, 48 hours before the rain," Mr Rohde said.
"We're looking forward to picking up some more, this week, with showers and possible rain - it's added some confidence again, after receiving 7.5-11mm for the whole of July."
Mr Rodhe said the crops were looking good, but needed more rain in spring, to retain yield.
