The project will do more than provide a general awareness of climate change and its implications for agriculture... High-profile on-ground activities in Queensland and NSW will address each of the Climate Change Research Program (CCRP) priorities: managing emissions, better soil management, and adapting to a changing climate... The activities will help farmers and advisers to understand the implications for management on their own farms and start developing their own adaptation strategies...

" Increasing water use efficiency and decreasing input costs for sustainable and profitable farms in a changing climate.. Growers in the Liebe region (Coorow, Dalwallinu, Perenjori and Wongan-Ballidu shires) have been seriously affected by recent droughts and as a result are looking at strategies to enable them to better adapt to a changing climate and seasonal variability... are looking to reduce input costs and adopt flexible farming systems that will allow them to retain their sustainability and profitability when faced with a changing climate...

A national network of demonstration sites, co-ordinated by key farm groups (owned and driven by farmers) in each State working in conjunction with State Agencies and CSIRO, will examine new and alternative strategies for farmers in the Australian broadacre wheat/sheep zone to mitigate the negative effects and capitalise on the opportunities of climate change on their production systems... The farm groups are uniquely situated to, not only demonstrate new practices, but also to bring awareness of the impacts of climate change and adaptations required to ensure continuing farm viability... Farmers in the dryland wheat-sheep zone will have greater awareness of the likely impacts of climate change on their production systems and are in a better position to develop practices which mitigate the likely negative impacts of climate change on their enterprise viability...

The objective of the national demonstration initiative is to establish a network of farms to demonstrate strategies for grain farming systems that address adaptation to climate change impacts... As a consequence: - Farmers and advisers have direct access to, and learning from, on-ground demonstration of new and existing, locally-relevant adaptations to climate change to maintain or enhance farm viability.- Rapid dissemination of meaningful and believable messages on adapting to climate change to their local communities.- Assessment of the emission implications of the demonstrated different adaptations using existing National Greenhouse Gas.. In collaboration with grower groups (including Facey, Liebe, North Mallee Farm Improvement Group and WANTFA), the Department of Agriculture and Food Western Australia (DAFWA) has planned a network of farms demonstrating climate risk management strategies across the central WA wheatbelt in 2011...

Australia could face dry conditions later this year with evolving climate patterns across the equatorial Pacific consistent with the early stages of a developing El Ni o... Computer forecasts over the past few months have also increasingly pointed to an El Ni o event as a distinct possibility for 2009... Other grains industry projects include: adapting a range of wheat types to elevated atmospheric CO 2 concentration - this $6.77 million University of Melbourne, Victorian Department of Primary Industries and GRDC-led project will test plant varieties in the field using state-of-the-art technology; cropping management adaptation - this $4.58 million CSIRO Climate Adaptation Flagship will help Australia's cropping systems adapt to climate change by evaluating the risk to production and industry's adaptive capacity..

Through the Australian Government's climate change initiative, Australia's Farming Future - Climate Change Research Program (CCRP), the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF) and the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) have commenced a demonstration program called the National Adaptation and Mitigation Initiative (NAMI)... GRDC is in partnership with Birchip Cropping Group (BCG), the Department of Employment Economic Development and Innovation (DEEDI), the Department of Primary Industries Victoria (DPI Vic) and the Department of Agriculture and Food Western Australia (DAFWA) in the delivery of the initiative... GRDC Managing Director Peter Reading says the initiative will play an important role in equipping primary producers with tools to adapt and adjust to the impact of climate change and to manage their emissions...

Accepting the science of climate change does not mean discounting the importance of climate variability.. When discussing climate risk, it is important to understand how climate variability and climate change interact.. In many cases when growers question climate change, they are questioning a view of climate change that seems to deny the year-to-year and decade-to-decade variability...

The farm groups are uniquely situated to, not only demonstrate new practices, but also to bring awareness of the impacts of climate change and adaptations required to ensure continuing farm viability... The approach will test a series of climate change adaptation options in experimental field conditions and enable the effective modeling of the outcomes of the demonstrations on farm income and risk management... Farmers in the dryland wheat-sheep zone will have greater awareness of the likely impacts of climate change on their production systems and are in a better position to develop practices which mitigate the likely negative impacts of climate change on their enterprise viability...
