A new research project is underway to help Australian grain growers protect against or avoid frost damage in wheat, barley and canola crops by varying their in-season agronomic practices. Frosts are difficult to predict, understand and manage and can have a significant impact on growers, their families and their communities. […] The project will be led by FAR Australia’s Dr Kenton Porker and includes a multi-disciplinary team of research partners such as the Western Australian Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development, CSIRO, Birchip Cropping Group, Frontier Farming, Living Farm, Mallee Sustainable Farming, EP Ag Research, NSW Department of Primary Industries, South Australian Research and Development Institute, and the University of Adelaide.
