NGN Tactics to minimise frost damage on the Eyre Peninsula
In 2022 and 2023, this investment will establish a frost management site to demonstrate tactics for growers and advisers to better manage frost in the central Eyre Peninsula. At additional sites (over both years), monitoring of canopy temperature and soil moisture will be conducted on ameliorated and non-ameliorated soil to understand the influence of amelioration on frost damage, as well as monitoring plant phenology to understand if any of the frost tolerance is in-fact tolerance or frost avoidance or a combination of both. Extension and communication will also be conducted through field days, site visits, updates and/or workshops.
