With frost damage now estimated to be costing growers $360 million a year, the Australian National Frost Program (ANFP) is broadening its assault on the issue... Dr Juttner says methods varied across the country, so the results could not be compared... Dr Juttner says the method ANFP researchers have now developed involves staggered times of sowing, so that when a frost event hits they can tag individual heads of different wheat and barley varieties, at the same stage of development - in other words, they can compare the effect of frost on different cultivars at a synchronised developmental stage and compare like with like...

Varietal differences in yield loss with delayed harvest can be in excess of 1.5 t/ha... There was a large difference between the amount of height reduction measured at the two sites with the maximum height reduction being 7 cm at Spring Ridge in 2011 compared to 34 cm at Moree in 2012... The low protein of Commander has generally been an advantage to meet malt specifications over the past couple of seasons extremely low proteins have been achieved throughout the region (<9%) suggesting that yield may have been sacrificed at this level...
