The Bureau of Meteorology has recently moved from a statistics-based to a physics -based (dynamical) model for its seasonal climate outlooks... The introduction by the Bureau of Meteorology of a new model in its three-month seasonal outlooks will provide grain growers with more reliable information to manage climate risk and guide their cropping activities, according to the Grains Research and Development Corporation... Multi-week forecasts, which are top of the list for the Managing Climate Variability (MCV) program, have come a step closer with the Bureau of Meteorology (BoM) switching to dynamical, or physics-based, forecasting...

Our GRDC-sponsored research aimed to quantify the economic value of the five SOI phases system (see note below) for tactical nitrogen management at mid-tillering in wheat in south-eastern Australia, and also to provide guidelines to improve profits without increasing the level of risk through exposure to climate variability... The study showed that higher profits, without increasing the level of risk of economic loss, can be achieved by adopting a seasonal forecasting system to determine the doses of nitrogen to be applied in split nitrogen applications between pre-drill and tillering... Rodriguez@dpi.vic.gov.au "Climate & Risk" provides information from the DPI project, "Tools to reduce the impact of climate variability in South Eastern Australia...

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. "..

Australian grain breeders now have new lines of wheat and barley with different versions of the major heading-date genes (the genes that control the length of time it takes for the crop to produce grain)... The research produced a set of wheat and barley lines with different versions of the heading-date genes, VRN1 and PPD1 , introduced into the best wheat and barley lines available... The genes are important determinants of where and when cultivars can be grown...
