From the farm to the lab to take on frost.. "I saw the job as an opportunity to better understand frost and work on research investigating options for managing it," Brenton says... While the results of the first year of research are being analysed, Brenton says working on a frost research project has opened his eyes to a wider range of career opportunities within the grains industry and allowed him to build more extensive industry networks...

Current frost phenotyping methods used within the Australian National Frost Program (ANFP) are based on frost induced sterility at flowering... This estimation of varietal response to frost assumes the reduction in grain number is the main yield component affected... There has been limited work evaluating the effect of frost induced sterility on yield components (grains per m2, spikes per m2 and grain weight) and final grain yield or for variation in this under frost...
