THE region's crop farmers have been lifted by recent widespread rainfall.
The Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) recorded varying rainfall totals across the region, including 25mm of the wet stuff at the Tamworth Airport weather station during a four-day period.
Meanwhile, the BOM recorded 20.6mm at the Gunnedah weather station.
Pursehouse Rural agronomist Matthew Roseby said the the rainfall was "perfect timing" for the region's farmers.
"It was perfectly timed because a few crops were starting to get a bit desperate for some rain," Mr Roseby said.
"The beauty of it was that it was just the sort of rain event we needed.
"From what I saw it fell steadily over a few days, which really allowed for it to soak in and limited the amount of flooding.
"There might be a few paddocks that are now a bit too wet to get into for spraying and things like that, but otherwise it was perfect."
Mr Roseby said while the rainfall was most welcome, more would be needed to ensure this year's crop was "a bumper".
"I think we still need similar rain events in late August and September for us to reach the predicted bumper harvest," he said.
"A lot of crops at the moment are looking really good, but they will need that last finishing rain to really reach the yields many are hoping for.
"It is a far better situation than we have been in for the past few years with the drought, but there is still a fair way to go."
Weatherzone is predicting another cold front could bring more rain to the region next week.
Weatherzone's Ben Domensino said " there are early signs that another upper-level trough will cross south-eastern Australia at some point next week."
"There is still quite a bit of uncertainty around the strength and timing of this system, although it should bring rain to NSW at some stage next week," he said.
"Exactly when and how much rain will fall is too difficult to predict just yet."
The rainfall has also helped the Namoi and Peel rivers begin flowing, which Mr Roseby said would give irrigators a confidence boost.
"I think the rivers flowing well again will give irrigators a lot of heart," he said.
"They did really well to get a cotton crop off earlier this season after a really bone-dry start.
"This bit of rain should fill some dams and fill those irrigators with some confidence for later in the year."
