This is an edited sound recording of a Queensland banana grower, Kerry Alcock, describing the devastation wrought by Cyclone Larry on his family business plantation in March 2006. Alcock tells how his crop was totally destroyed and how a new crop had to be planted from scratch using about 65,000 'suckers'. He also points out that he expects to suffer large losses from cyclones occasionally and mentions another time when he had a total crop loss. The recording was made in January 2008 and lasts for 1 minute 35 seconds.
