Catalogue: GRDC Final Reports
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...

Grain growers throughout the southern cropping region are advised to expect a heightened risk of frost this season due to the developing El Ni o climate event... Dr Hayman, who is involved in frost research projects being funded by the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) through its National Frost Initiative, said while the risk of frost was expected to be increased this year, the exact timing and frequency of frost events could not be predicted... The GRDC is continuing its long-term commitment to funding frost-related research, with its recently launched five year National Frost Initiative focused on identifying and delivering practical genetic, management and environmental solutions to assist growers to manage the impact of frost...

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...

"High pressure systems are usually centered over the Great Australian Bight during summer, and move up towards the centre of the country during autumn... The movement allows low pressure systems to take their place, influencing the development of cold fronts and rainfall... Work by Dr Steven Crimp from CSIRO shows that since 1980 the frequency of very cool months has declined, but at the same time, some grain-growing areas in the east have seen an increase in the number of frost days...

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...
