Analyses are now available in an iPhone/iPad App, CliMate , and web based tools, providing ready access to site specific climate information... We describes the rationale and application of mobile technology to provide a range of analyses using long term climate data for any Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) station in Australia... Probability of future events based on long term climate data (so called "climatology") using basic weather variables;..

The experience of climate extremes can influence growers in their decision making in subsequent years, even though the risk of the particular event reoccurring is minimal... website will collate regional specific climate, weather, soil, crop and economic information, via an online interactive program to assist farmers and advisers in making informed decisions at various stages during the cropping cycle... CropMate is an interactive internet site for the grains industry designed to be to use for advisors, agronomist and farmers across eastern states (NSW, Queensand, Victoria and South Australia)...

While the focus was on developing generic models to address questions related to when to attempt eradication and when to contain and mitigate, the focus was on developing decision support tools to achieve optimal management strategies for controlling the parasitic weed branched broomrape ( Orobanche ramosa )... We applied the decision tool to branched broomrape to choose between alternative management strategies and it was parameterised by collaborating with the branched broomrape eradication team... The research provides a move forward in decision theory techniques for ecological systems as previous methods have not dealt with the issue of partially observable states adequately...

CropMate proves the grain growers' friend.. A Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC)-funded online decision support tool - CropMate - is helping grain growers make sense of weather and climate information... "The CropMate tool is an example of how innovative research can be used to support grain grower decision making by incorporating research data, particularly around fertiliser use, variety performance, water use efficiency and sowing time, agronomic knowledge and climate information into the decision support tool," Professor Herridge said...

CropMate has been developed by Industry & Investment NSW using data from the Bureau of Meteorology and the QCCCE (Queensland Climate Change Centre of Excellence)... With inputs of commodity prices and growing costs, he compares a gross margins for wheat, durum, barley, canola, chickpea and faba beans that have been weighted according to the latest seasonal forecasts... 4. Tracking the season pages presents observations for the month, comparisons of accumulated rainfall, decision tool for nitrogen topdressing, a calculator to compare the outcome when salvaging crops for hay, silage or grazing and a top dressing decision tool...

Enhanced efficiency fertilisers (EEFs), including slow release compounds and urease and nitrification inhibitors, show promise for improving efficiency, increasing management flexibility, and reducing N2O emissions... Enhanced efficiency fertilisers, including controlled release fertilisers and fertilisers amended with urease or nitrification inhibitors, show promise for improving nitrogen use efficiency... The main objective of the project is to assess the benefits of enhanced efficiency fertilisers, particularly nitrification inhibitors, in mitigating nitrous oxide emissions and increasing the efficiency of nitrogen fertilisers for a range of agricultural industries, including cropping (Victoria and NSW), sugarcane (Queensland) and dairy (Victoria), under different climatic conditions that are found across Australia...

A reliable and timely crop disease forecast can help growers in managing the disease... With the background, this project is designed to provide grain growers with such tools and/or outputs of the tools as disease risk forecasts to minimise the impact of diseases... The project will deliver two outputs: one, the decision support tools (which forecast disease risk and impact on grain crops) developed from disease epidemiological data, validated in target environments and made available to stakeholders; and two, the current and updated IDM recommendations, support tools and knowledge provided to grain growers in WA, and where applicable in GRDC Southern region, through regular print and electronic publications and in-person extension activities and delivery evaluated against industry needs...

CliMate app to help put a handle on the weather.. The app can provide three types of answers based on long-term and recent weather data: the probability of future events based on long-term data; the probability of future events based on El Ni o-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) forecasts; and the current status of the system, such as the soil water and heat sum, based on real-time data from the nearest climate station... Dr Freebairn says that creating an app was somewhat risky because he had not developed for that platform before. "..
