Catalogue: GRDC Updates
CropMate has been developed by Industry & Investment NSW using data from the Bureau of Meteorology and the QCCCE (Queensland Climate Change Centre of Excellence)... With inputs of commodity prices and growing costs, he compares a gross margins for wheat, durum, barley, canola, chickpea and faba beans that have been weighted according to the latest seasonal forecasts... 4. Tracking the season pages presents observations for the month, comparisons of accumulated rainfall, decision tool for nitrogen topdressing, a calculator to compare the outcome when salvaging crops for hay, silage or grazing and a top dressing decision tool...

Tracking the season pages presents observations for the month, comparisons of accumulated rainfall, decision tool for nitrogen topdressing, a calculator to compare the outcome when salvaging crops for hay, silage or grazing and a top dressing decision tool... The CropMate tool is an example of how innovative research can be used to support grain grower decision making by incorporating research data, particularly around fertiliser use, variety performance, water use efficiency and sowing time, agronomic knowledge and climate information into the decision support tool...

The simulations provide a framework for farmers and advisers to: forecast yield manage climate and soil water risk make informed decisions about nitrogen and irrigation applications match inputs with the yield potential of their crop assess the effect of changed sowing dates or varieties assess the possible effects of climate change ... Yield Prophet generates crop simulations that combine the essential components of growing a crop including: a soil test sampled prior to planting a soil classification selected from the Yield Prophet library of ~1,000 soils selected as representative of the production area historical and active climate data taken from the nearest Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) weather station paddock specific rainfall data recorded by the user (optional) individual crop details fertiliser and irrigation applications during the growing season... Using historic climate data, Yield Prophet then simulates crop growth and resource availability from the day on which the report was generated to the end of the season...
