Climate data to aid drought resilience
Augusta Margaret River Mail, Other, 24/01/2021
Farmers will be given access to specialised climate data to help build their drought resilience under a new federal government initiative. The $10 million Climate Services for Agriculture program will provide detailed regional information about future drought and climate risks, assisting farmers to prepare for potential impacts depending on their particular needs. […] CSIRO and BOM will engage the agricultural sector to determine the type of climate information that is most useful to their businesses and test in four pilot regions to ensure the decision support tools meet their needs,” he said in a statement.
