A research effort led by CSIRO, with GRDC investment, has developed a modeling tool that could in future years help growers rapidly understand the extent of crop damage following a frost event to aid with timely decision-making post-frost.
The Frost Mapping project is one of a number of projects related to GRDC’s key investment target strategy for frost.

A range of resources to help growers identify and manage frosted crops are available on the GRDC website:
- Frost Identification Guide, produced by DPIRD with co-investment from GRDC, available at https://grdc.com.au/CerealFrostIDGuide
- GRDC Managing Frost Risk Tips and Tactics at https://grdc.com.au/ManagingFrostRisk
- More information on frost management can be found via the GRDC’s suite of GrowNotes™ publications available at https://grdc.com.au/grownotes
And on CSIRO’s website…
