The take home messages from this GRDC funded research are below. Please access the full paper via the link below for methodology, references, acknowledgements and discussion.
Take home messages from the paper include:
- Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions continue to accumulate in the earth’s atmosphere and drive warmer global temperatures. Warming of globally averaged air temperatures of just over 1oC since records began in 1850 has produced national, regional and local changes in environmental conditions. These changes have shifted debate from “Is climate change real?” to “What should we do about it?”
- Adapting agricultural practises will be required to respond to changing environmental conditions and will require all components of the agricultural value chain to work together in order to maintain resilient and profitable food systems.
