Initiative 85

Better equipping farmers to deal with climate variability (B.CCH.2081)

Climate variability is a critical issue for cattle and sheep farmers in terms of the sustainability of their business.

What are we doing?

The Managing Climate Variability program has been researching multi-week climate forecasting for farmers for 18 years. The program provides farmers with practical tools to incorporate climate information into farm business decisions and was instrumental in setting up the Water and the Land section of the Bureau of Meteorology web site.
