Frost SENSE: An integrated modelling framework to rapidly map the extent of stem and reproductive frost damage in wheat and barley

Frost risk occurs virtually every year across southern and eastern Australian agricultural regions. Actual occurrence of frost is determined by location and landscape factors as well as climate. This project aims to demonstrate the capability of satellite data, combined with temperature maps and other data sources, to map frost damage in wheat and barley crops.

The project will also Investigate farm scale economics of frost-damage mapping and the benefits of improvements that may be obtained from remote sensing data.
