Underestimating frost damage in crops could be costly.. It is critical that growers have a really close inspection of their crops, take samples and check them thoroughly to determine if they have been affected... The three-pronged initiative will address: genetics - aiming to develop more frost-tolerant varieties; management - investigating if there are preventive products, stubble and nutrition management practices or other measures that growers could implement to reduce the impact of frost; and environmental prediction - focusing on predicting the impact of frost events on crop yields and mapping frost events at the farm scale to enable better risk management...

It is critical that growers have a really close inspection of their crops, take samples and check them thoroughly to determine if they have been affected... "If crops have been severely impacted by frost and a decent yield is unlikely, it would be a considerable waste of money applying urea or fungicides over the remainder of the season, so growers need to know what they are dealing with," he said...

Growers urged to act now on frost damage.. "Growers should check crops for damage immediately, as delay will limit their options to reduce financial losses from frost damage," he said... "Frost has caused direct yield losses of up to 80 per cent in individual canola crops in localised areas of central and southern parts of the state, although the results of frost damage are not quick to show in cereal crops," he said...

Affected pods go grey inside in the early stages, then the whole pod rots (left); note the characteristic small black resting bodies on the stem (right) Collar rot or lasiodiplodia: bushes rapidly wilt and rot at ground level.. The disease seems to be worse where the soil is degraded through erosion or scalping during land levelling... Infection occurs at soil level where stems and crowns suffer from heat stress, soil abrasion or drought...
