CSIRO forecasts for farmers

Research carried out by the CSIRO and the Bureau of Meteorology would forecast weather conditions in 100 kilometre by 100km quadrants across the country, with the collected data then used to identify probable changes to factors such as growing seasons, yields and the effect on livestock, reported The Land (23/8/2007, p. 3).

Predicitons in 20-year increments: The study also looked at broader climate change impact forecasting predictions for the years 2030, 2050 and 2070. NSW Department of Primary Industries project leader, Climate Risk Management Agriculture and Fisheries, Gary Allan, described the report as "ground breaking stuff". The research will be released on October 2 at the 2007 Greenhouse conference in Sydney.
