Frost is difficult to manage. It has a significant economic and emotional impact on the whole community.
Climate change is putting pressure on wheat yields in south-west Western Australia (WA) in several ways: lower annual and autumn and spring rainfall; later starts to the growing season; higher temp
Growers who know the amount of water that a soil can hold for plant growth — the size of the 'bucket' — can estimate potential crop yield and the value of treating soil constraints to that yield.
Climate change in south-western Western Australia is a reality. There have been increased temperatures, decreased annual rainfall and increased climate variability.
Buffel and birdwood grasses (Cenchrus ciliaris and C. setiger) are introduced species found in the Western Australian rangelands.
Wind and water erosion risk is increased after fire removes groundcover and some seed reserves.
Frost risk occurs virtually every year across southern and eastern agricultural regions. Actual occurrence of frost is determined by location and landscape factors as well as climate.
