The Queensland Farmers’ Federation, AgForce Queensland, the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) and the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries (DAF) are delivering a series of workshops for primary producers and service providers.
BOM Meteorologists and Senior Forecasters Rick Threlfal and Michelle Berry will discuss the process of weather forecasting and what it means for primary producers. They will also demonstrate the use of the models and tools available on the BOM website and how to access climate and weather information.
DAF Senior Extension Officer Damien O’Sullivan will explain how to understand long-term climate forecasts, what to look for and how to understand some of Queensland climate drivers; and what to expect for the season ahead.
