Frost Situation Analysis

Plain text source: 
Substantial wheat and barley crop losses due to frost are known to occur in each of the major cropping regions of Australia... Direct damage to plant tissues reduces yield affecting crops even when current best practice is followed... Allocation of finite frost research and management resources to maximise benefits to growers requires a scientifically-based, quantitative understanding of the economic impacts of frost in each Australian cropping zone and of the relative impacts caused by direct damage versus forgone yield potential in each case...
