Dr Stephens says earlier sowing has benefits for crops, as they experience lower evaporative demand through the growing season and appear to be less affected by declining rain in October and increasing spring temperatures... During the growing season, Dr Stephens says changing climate will also require adaptation of input strategies and changes to crop disease and pest risks, especially with more summer rain creating 'green bridges'...
