This report summarises the findings of a new climate forecasting technology available to farmers in Australia’s pastoral region.
The Land Water and Wool Climate Map Arranger website program has allowed woolgrowers in Australia’s pastoral region to utilise seasonal climate forecast and risk assessment information.
It is a complex program which calculates the climate risk assessment based on simulated pasture growth, depending on the climatic conditions ahead and the initial conditions of the pasture system.
This program allows potential for woolgrowers to increase capacity for informed management decisions.
