We used the tools to quantify the climatic risks related to farm management options such as crop rotation, sowing date, cultivar, and nitrogen management, at eight locations in SEA. During the life of the project farmers showed increasing interest in these tools so that many are now commonly in use... 16. A tool (software package) "Climate Variability Analyser" to simplify the analysis of climate variability has been produced... Significant changes were observed in shift and dispersion of the probability distribution functions for climate variables and grain yield among the SOI and SSTs phases calculated at the end of July...

SARDI's Dr Alan McKay inspects root systems affected by Rhizoctonia... "We are not completely sure why, but suspect that the break crops might not have been completely grass-free, as grasses and cereals are the main hosts of Rhizoctonia," Dr McKay says... Dr McKay says early indications are that where the 2015 season was particularly poor in some areas of Victoria, many growers will be planting wheat on wheat in 2016 to recover some of the inputs from the previous season...

Current farming systems expose farmers to heavy losses during good seasons when the risk of crop failure is low and returns could be maximised by additional levels of N... The SOI phases, originally developed in Queensland, can be used to identify a set of past years of similar climatic characteristics (analogue years) to the present season... Seasonal climate forecasting is a crucial tool for growers to micro-adjust and governments to macro-adjust economic strategies and policies to reduce impacts on private, estate and national economic objectives...

Seasonal climate forecasting is a crucial tool for growers to micro-adjust and governments to macro-adjust economic strategies and policies to reduce impacts on private, estate and national economic objectives... By assessing the economic value of existing forecasting systems for growers, and developing methods to incorporate climate information into farm decision-making, a GRDC-supported Victorian Department of Primary Industries (DPI) project set out to address some of these issues...
