Agricultural climate risk information

The variability of Queensland's weather and climate is one of the most difficult risks for the agriculture sector to manage. The most effective way of managing this risk is by applying weather and climate information when making on-farm decisions.

Risks are obviously different for different agricultural land uses. For example, horticulture crops can be particularly sensitive to temperature which may cause significant reduction in yields; plantation forestry is particularly sensitive to strong wind events such as cyclones which may cause significant tree damage.

To help inform decision making, important climate information has been compiled to complement the information contained in the Audit. This supporting information can be accessed by selecting one of the following Agricultural Land Use Categories or Audit regions.
