2013 proved to be a successful season for those involved in agriculture in the south eastern wheat-belt area of Western Australia. Good rains throughout the growing season produced exceptional grain yields, providing a much needed boost to those who had been struggling with dry seasons for the past few years.

The crew at South East Air Ag kept busy starting in March, progressing through the season, operating up to five aircraft for a period, matching demand for our services as they were required, tapering off as the harvest progressed, with only two aircraft operating at the end of December, one spraying stubbles and the other sub-contracted to Dunn Aviation, being used on a fire-bombing contract.

A second prime mover was purchased early in 2013. New trailers and a tri dolly were purchased in October to cart fertiliser and grain with around 11,800 tonnes of grain moved this harvest with the two road trains.
