Final Report: DAS00017 - Reducing the impact of climate variability - frost
Plain text source:
The outcome of the research has been summarised in the book "Managing Frost Risk - A guide for Southern Australian Grains"... The agronomic practices needed to reduce frost risk are summarised in Table 1... As described by Gusta (2007), the process of cold acclimation (where some crops show an increase in freezing tolerance by being exposed to temperatures of less than 8 C) is under genetic control and the genes responsible for the increase in freezing tolerance are regulated by temperature in the field...
