This project is working with the Seasonal Risk team in Agriculture Victoria to extend their successful seasonal forecast commentary ‘The Break’ to now include South Australia and Tasmania. Here’s a look at the new suite of seasonal outlook products that are specific to your region.

Seasonal Climate Outlook - Webinar Series

The 'Using seasonal forecasts' project runs a series of lunchtime webinars detailing seasonal risk, model projections for our climate drivers and soil moisture conditions for producers in each of the GRDC Southern region states. These webinars are held to coincide with key decision making periods of the year. They are simply on-line presentations which allows you to interact with the presenter.
