Farmers are looking forward and planning sowing after recent rain arrived in the MIA.
April has been the wettest month of the year with 106 millimetres recorded at Griffith airport - more than double the April 2019 when 48 millimetres fell.
The rain during the last week of April has been likened to an autumn break which happens around Anzac Day.
Yenda horticulturalist Peter Raccanello said the rain would mean his grape vines and prune trees wouldn't need to be irrigated as early.
In recent seasons he started irrigating the prune trees in July, he's hopeful he'll be able to start later this year.
Mr Raccanello estimated around 52 millimetres had fallen in Yenda in the last week.
Additional rain would mean there was plenty of moisture so when temperatures began to warm up later this year the trees wouldn't be under stress.
"It's good soaking rain. It's good to see. It's traditional to get good rain around Anzac Day, it's more like a traditional break," Mr Raccanello said.
Mr Raccanello said he was keen to see more rain fall around the MIA, but also in dam catchment areas to support irrigation allocations.
Snow had been recorded in the state's alpine areas which Mr Raccanello said would help fill the dams.
"We need more snow and rain on top of that," he said.
While winter grasses were a worry, Mr Raccanello said they wouldn't take much work to knock down once the ground had dried out.
Widgelli farmer Glen Dal Broi said he was feeling hopeful after the rain and was waiting for the ground to dry out before sowing winter cereal crops.
"It's shaping up better than last year, we're about 100 millimetres better compared to last year," he said.
For the last two years he hasn't sown rice but will consider planting a crop for the 2021 harvest if there's further rain during the year.
"It feels as though it's gone back to a normal season," Mr Dal Broi said.
Gogeldrie ricegrower Rob Houghton said he was feeling positive because the recent rain wasn't associated with a cyclone.
"It's heartening that we're getting rain. For the first time this rain is what I would call a traditional autumn break," he said.
"Fingers cross we get more rain, particularly in the mountains."
Mr Houghton said for farmers sowing a winter crop the rain would give them hope that a harvest can be grown on the moisture already in the soil.
