The assessment will involve comparing past POAMA forecasts with the historical record and improving our understanding of how the frequency of these events changes with large scale drivers of atmosphere and ocean circulation such as ENSO, the IOD, blocking, and SAM. We will work with farmers, their advisers, and extension providers to incorporate forecasts of the likelihood of frost and heat events into their risk management... We will assess the utility of forecast information at seasonal time scales and outline strategies to manage temperature extremes... The tests would also be carried out in the seasonal forecast model, POAMA. We would assess if, when, and where (across the grain regions), POAMA has skill in forecasting changed likelihoods of cold and heat extremes on seasonal time scales of relevance to the sowing decision...

Team Fat Farmers set out to have fun, get fit and raise money for the Menswatch program... Among the 40,000 participants in the 2015 Adelaide City-Bay Fun Run were 130 from South Australian farming families running as team 'Fat Farmers'... Ben, Greg and Scott came up with the Fat Farmers concept about seven years ago, and over the years a group of 12 to 15 Yorke Peninsula growers and their families have trained and participated in one of the 12, six or three-kilometre running or walking events in the City-Bay Fun Run...

" Adapting wheat to future warm and dry climates - improved simulation of flowering and tillering.. Extreme heat events in southern Australia in 2004 and 2009 and most recently in October 2014 have raised questions about the likelihood of such events in the future and their consequences for cropping systems.. CSIRO research is investigating how current Australian wheat varieties will fare developmentally under future climate change scenarios...

"As a team we aim to better understand the complexities of frost in different environments, to determine whether there is genetic variation for frost tolerance in the field, to explore potential genetic and environmental interactions between regions, and to provide a focus on methods," Dr Biddulph says... "If there is variation - and preliminary results suggest that some genotypes may be more sensitive than others - we can assist breeding programs to develop varieties less sensitive to frost.".. While frost-tolerant crops are the ultimate goal, in order to get to that distant point we need a better understanding of how different frost events affect different cereals in different environments...
