Better Rainfall Forecasts for Grain Growers
The Faculty of Agriculture and Environment, in partnership with GrainGrowers and supported by funding from the Australian Research Council, has commenced a project that will combine the weather data collected on-farm by most grain farmers with existing data from the Bureau of Meteorology (and elsewhere), to develop a new type of very local seasonal climate predictor.
These more sophisticated individualised forecasts will then be delivered to many thousands of grain farmers.
