Cropping in a changing climate

From Geraldton to Esperance, the South-West of WA has experienced increasingly variable climate conditions for over a century. With increasingly drier winters and warmer, wetter summers affecting our state’s cropping industry; we need to gather and integrate knowledge from across Science to understand how best to respond to the challenges ahead.

Join three UWA experts: Frances Hoyle (Soil), Nicolas Taylor (Plant) and Don McFarlane (Climate effects on water) as they explore how research has helped address previous and current challenges facing growers; and help them anticipate how we ‘gear up’ and identify areas of future knowledge needed for the sustainability of the industry.
