THE WEEKLY TIMES | Urea trucks travelling huge distances

Truckloads of urea are clocking up thousands of kilometres to reach far-flung destinations as farmers race the clock to apply the much-needed input.

Without urea, Victorian and southern NSW cropping farmers estimate yield losses from winter crops of 20 to 50 per cent.
