The Northern Australia Climate Program and Chinchilla Landcare Group invite you to Forecasting for decision-making.

The Northern Australia Climate Program’s regionally located ‘Climate Mates’ deliver climate and forecasting workshops across Northern Australia. During these workshops, the team discovered that 7/10 producers have been misinterpreting the rainfall forecast for years!

North Australia Climate Program (NACP) is now offering an online short course, Forecasting for Decision-Making, that has been designed to upskill producers to get the most out of the weather forecasts and read them accurately. This course covers: El Nino-Southern Oscillation (ENSO); Indian Ocean Dipole (IOD); Madden Julien Oscillation (MJO); and Interpreting the Forecast. One-on-one follow up ensures this information is tailored to your property.

Supported by the Bureau of Meteorology and the UK Met office, this course will give you the knowledge to correctly interpret and use forecasting as a productive tool in decision-making.

This event will also include a special presentation from Paul Pritchard, Ag Solutions: ‘Livestock Nutritional Requirements during a Wetter Season’.
