Harvest is crunch time for each year's crop, and always a good opportunity to evocatively capture on film the season's end-game.. Harvester at night in fields with moon shining through clouds... In the areas, growers suggest that early sowing, good winter rains and newer wheat varieties, such as LongReach ScoutA and Mace, have all contributed to the production achieved, despite receiving only 40mm of spring rain...

Dr Andrew Watkins explains what these climate indicators mean for grain growers... El Ni o events usually last for one season, developing in autumn and winter and starting to dissipate by summer, though have been known to last between six months and two years... "The effect of a positive IOD is similar to El Ni o, though it is shorter lived as it usually starts in winter and collapses in late spring-early summer, when the monsoon season starts...

We suggest that Seasonal Climate Forecasts have a role to play as part of the toolkit, but they need to be incorporated into risk management rather than as seen as a replacement for risk management... In the presentation we will show that there is good reason to follow ENSO in the Southern Grains Belt and that a view that ENSO is only relevant to the Northern Grains belt (north of Dubbo) is unwise... Being smarter about how we use SCF In a recent assessment of the tactical use of seasonal climate forecasts for cropping decisions, Crimp et al. (2007) from CSIRO Sustainable Ecosystems compared six different seasonal climate forecast indices across thirteen different farms in three regions (SE Qld, northern Victoria and WA) with either single decisions or packages of decisions tied to climate forecasts...
