Beans, snow peas, zucchinis
Speaking to ABC News, Trevor Cross from Cross Family Farms says, "A lot of our beans have all died because of the wet weather, so that's probably our most impacted. Those and the snow peas.”
He added: “"Zucchini plants are in the ground, but they don't like the rain. The harvest drags out a lot because it's too cold for them to grow.
"You'll see a lot of cracking in the tomatoes, as well as leaf disease."
Apples and avos
While there's currently an oversupply of avocadoes, farmers sown south say that may change.
David Freeman from Freeman's Organic Farm in the Currumbin Valley told the ABC he’s already lost about 70 per cent of his custard apples.
"But what I'm finding now is because of the saturation of the soil, lack of sunshine, and cold temperatures, we unfortunately have started to lose avocado trees through Phytophthora, a soil fungus,” he said.
