CANE crops in parts of Central Queensland have been ravaged by rain, leading growers to seek financial support from the government.Industry body Canegrowers said it was too early to determine the full extent of the damage but it appears the Bundaberg, Maryborough and Childers areas were worst hit.
Most districts in Bundaberg received 550mm of rain in two days, while in one area of Childers a whopping 514mm fell in 24 hours.
Canegrowers chief executive Steve Greenwood said in other areas the crop was looking good under the circumstances.
The organisation is in talks with the state and federal governments about support for individual growers who have been significantly impacted.
The nation's overall cane production is not expected to be significantly affected.
"Our hearts go out to the communities and everyone in those communities impacted by these events," Mr Greenwood said in a statement.
