" Teleconnections between climate drivers and regional climate, and model representation of links.. Project Code: MCV00007.. Weather is influenced by many interconnected systems in the atmosphere, ocean and on land; small changes in one part of the world can impact on the weather in another part - days, weeks and even years later < Keep browsing..

Kevin Kilby is hoping research will eventually come up with a cheaper, more effective way to control fallow weeds like fleabane... The coming season has the potential - courtesy of well-soaked soils - to deliver above-average yields, but Kevin is quick to point out that recent history has shown nothing can be taken for granted... Kevin soil-tests about 40 per cent of his paddocks to gain a broad picture of his nutrient needs, but hasn't invested in variable-rate technologies, saying weed control has the biggest influence on his crops' performance and that, for the moment, remains the priority...

Ron Longbottom seized every clear day he could in November and early December to harvest his wheat, barley, canola and field peas beneath lowering skies... Man looks over his crops from atop his harvester.. After successfully managing a meagre 140 millimetres of rain to produce quite reasonable crops, the rain finally turned up just in time to create a harvest headache for Western Australian grower Ron Longbottom...

The experience of climate extremes can influence growers in their decision making in subsequent years, even though the risk of the particular event reoccurring is minimal... website will collate regional specific climate, weather, soil, crop and economic information, via an online interactive program to assist farmers and advisers in making informed decisions at various stages during the cropping cycle... CropMate is an interactive internet site for the grains industry designed to be to use for advisors, agronomist and farmers across eastern states (NSW, Queensand, Victoria and South Australia)...

Chickpea grain defects can cost a grower $50 to $80 per tonne, and knowing which varieties are susceptible to these defects, and what environmental conditions encourage these defects, is key knowledge to combat them... GRDC and the New South Wales (NSW) Department of Primary Industries (DPI) launched research to mitigate the impact of chickpea grain defects and diseases in the north... Dr Jennifer Wood and Dr Kevin Moore from NSW DPI are mapping the incidence of defects and disease against weather data across Australia, to determine underlying causes and genetic susceptibility...

CliMate app to help put a handle on the weather.. The app can provide three types of answers based on long-term and recent weather data: the probability of future events based on long-term data; the probability of future events based on El Ni o-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) forecasts; and the current status of the system, such as the soil water and heat sum, based on real-time data from the nearest climate station... Dr Freebairn says that creating an app was somewhat risky because he had not developed for that platform before. "..

Recent collaborative research work investigating the decision-making tool Yield Prophet , supported by the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC), aimed to help Western Australian growers answer this question... Growers accessing information from the sites could easily identify crop progress during the season and adapt their logistics and applications ... According to a report compiled by DAFWA about the work in the Albany port zone, Yield Prophet is a moderately complex program for which new users require assistance, and growers probably need consultant support to get best value from it...

Nuffield paper predicts better weather forecasts.. Newly completed research by a South Australian Nuffield scholar says that weather forecasting has become increasingly accurate in recent years, but farmers should not take predictions literally... "In the media we see stories of farmers who followed a forecast of a drought literally, made a dramatic business decision, such as deciding not to sow any crop at all or totally de-stocking, which proved to be the correct decision and resulted in a dramatic escape from its effects...
