Reducing the impact of climate variability

Plain text source: 
Our GRDC-sponsored research aimed to quantify the economic value of the five SOI phases system (see note below) for tactical nitrogen management at mid-tillering in wheat in south-eastern Australia, and also to provide guidelines to improve profits without increasing the level of risk through exposure to climate variability... The study showed that higher profits, without increasing the level of risk of economic loss, can be achieved by adopting a seasonal forecasting system to determine the doses of nitrogen to be applied in split nitrogen applications between pre-drill and tillering...
