Climate tool for drought resilience updated

Climate tool for drought resilience updated

Climate Services for Agriculture (CSA) gives Australian farmers an online platform to help prepare for climate variability, providing seasonal forecasts, future climate projections and historical climate data.

Funded by the Australian Government's Future Drought Fund and developed by the Bureau of Meteorology and CSIRO, CSA provides insights into how users can adapt their business to increase climate resilience.

CSA user and Western Australian beef farmer Dale Park encourages farmers to go online and look at CSA.

'The real value of this tool is to help make farmers aware of what the future might hold and to plan accordingly.'

Incorporating feedback from the agriculture sector, new features have been added that allow greater customisation of location-specific data as well as climate insights for even more crops, including mangoes, potatoes and bananas.
