Our team delivers actionable weather and climate knowledge to help agricultural sectors manage variability in their business. We have a deep understanding of the available weather and climate forecast information available, how skilful these forecasts are and how they can be interpreted and implemented into a decision framework. We work with domain specialists to integrate this knowledge into key decision points to increase productivity and profitability to farmers and agribusiness along the agricultural supply chain.
Predict forestry climate change with the click of a mouse thanks to new tool 1st June 2018 Forest managers will be able to gauge the likely effect of climate change on growing conditions in their specific areas with a new interactive online tool developed by the CSIRO with funding from FWPA. The free Forest Climate […]
Climate models provide forecasts on grids with scale of about 100km. We need information at the paddock scale. We work with other leading data scientists across CSIRO to develop techniques to downscale climate data and calibrate to local weather stations. For further information contact: Jaci Brown
We are looking for a new Postdoc to help us explore the climate drivers across Northern Australia. We want to understand how features such as the Madden Julien Oscillation, El nino-Southern Oscillation and the Indian Ocean Dipole interact and how this information can help farmers make timely decisions such as fertiliser application, ripening times, mustering, […]
Project vision: to help farmers make paddock-level decisions based on current-season as well multi-year weather and climate forecasts Most agricultural sectors are exposed to the vagaries of weather, which directly affects their productivity and economic return and indirectly affects them through global changes in prices. Next gen weather and climate forecasting capability and tools will […]
Yield Prophet Lite is a free tool that lets you estimate potential yield values for your crop given different rainfall amounts and fertiliser application rates. It also gives the rainfall likelihood for the remainder of the growing season. It has been developed by CSIRO and Birchip Cropping Group For more information : http://www.yieldprophet.com.au/yplite/
