Turning up the heat of frost in cereals

With frost costing growers tens of millions of dollars annually across Australia’s cropping zones, it is not surprising that frost resistance is at the top of many grain growers’ research and development wish list.

While it is unlikely that total immunity to frost can be delivered in cereals, the GRDC is making a considerable investment to reduce the frost susceptibility of Australian wheat and barley crops through a combination of genetics and crop management research.

This Ground Cover Supplement details the scope of the GRDC frost investment across each of its cropping zones.
