Assessing frost damage
Host: Tony Crowley | Date: 07 Aug 2019
This episode is focussed on the second research component of the Frost Mapping project, assessing frost damage before its visible to the naked eye, using the Electromagnetic spectrum.
This is a collaborative project involving Mick Faulkner, the University of Western Australia, Agriculture Victoria and grain growers, including David Mitchell from Mintaro in South Australia’s north eastern grain growing zone.
The Frost Mapping project is one of a number of projects related to GRDC’s key investment target strategy for frost.
