NRM on Farms Newsletter April 2015
Ocean temperatures are warming and with them the likelihood of a wetter and warmer normal season ahead, and a possible El Nino by winter, although accuracy of model outlooks at this time of year is lower than at other times. The University of Melbourne publication ‘Appetite for change’ identifies the impacts of global warming on key farming regions and household food in Australia. There is increasing interest in food security in a changing climate to judge by the number of reports appearing on this topic. And lastly, NSW DPI’s Rural Resilience Program wants to hear from farmers, farm workers and their families on coping in droughts. You will find a link to the survey in the Sustainability section.
