A farmer harvests a wheat field stunted by drought near Warracknabeal, about 186 miles (300 kilometers) northwest of Melbourne, Australia, on November 14, 2006.
In a normal year in Australia, wheat farmers should be wading through fields of green. But seven years into the worst drought in modern history, farmers of every variety across the country are attempting to salvage what they can of their failed crops.
About 65 percent of Australia's agricultural land is in drought—and in crisis, experts say.
A lot of the farmers are having a significant loss of income, said Jock Laurie, president of New South Wales Farmers Association.
