Why agriculture sector depends on the weather forecast and climatic changes?

One of the most important aspects of agriculture is to have a clear picture of the entire season in your mind due to the fact that cultivation is highly dependent on climatic changes and their long-term or short-term effects.

In recent times, the Australian agriculture sector has been affected immensely by rising temperatures and low winter rainfalls that resulted in many disturbed cultivations. These variable features of precipitation are common under such climatic changes.

This will modify rural production globally, where some parts of Europe and North America will get benefited from warmer climates but overall the crops yield will deteriorate.

Similar to what is happening around the world, the Australian agriculture sector will be affected majorly where the main concern is the local and international food security.

So how are we adapting to such conditions, what are the solutions to these problems?

During dry conditions, farm performances are improvised such as conservation tillage and soil amelioration, focus on preserving soil moisture to adapt to reduced season rainfall.

The Australian Bureau of Agricultural and Resource Economics and Sciences (ABARES) ensures to predict and measure the indicators in between the normal and dry season to understand and behave towards farming according to the results.

Apart from the improvements that the Australian government has taken in order, the profits are getting more sensitive to such conditions. On average the productivity level and profits are increased but the profits in normal and drought seasons are considered crucial.

The question remains the same…are we responsible for this? Are we taking enough measures to resolve the global warming conditions?

The main aim should be to continue adapting to the situations and yielding the crops without losing any hope.
