WA growers adapt to changing rainfall patterns.. 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'...

Populations have been developed from these lines and are being used to determine if these exotic wheats offer different genetic mechanisms for improving frost tolerance in future varieties... International research and breeding efforts have resulted in significant improvements in frost tolerance at the vegetative stages of crop development, which is an important production constraint in many northern hemisphere environments... Recent advances in field-based screening methods, experimental design and statistical analysis provide an opportunity to benchmark the level of frost tolerance in Australian varieties and exotic germplasm...

Water logged soils can result in significant N loss through denitrification... Professor Grace says the first step in defining a nitrogen program is for growers to observe how their soils respond to rainfall to better understand how they are likely to lose nitrogen (see breakout box on types of N loss)... Previous work has shown that for every 1 kg of N lost as N 2 O, as much as 10-50 kg of N may be lost to N 2 ...
