    New Zealand may be heading into an abnormally dry winter

    New Zealand may be heading into an abnormally dry winter


    Seven locations throughout the country have experienced near record dryness last month.

    Dunedin had its equal-driest April on record - while Wellington had its fourth.

    Central Otago economist Bill Kaye-Blake says farmers will be preparing and planning for what's likely to be a challenging winter.

    He says industry bodies have recently done a lot of work to help farmers make good decisions in dry conditions.
