The economic and environmental viability of farming enterprises depends on good decision making. However, seasonal conditions and weather events can play a major role in determining the outcome of such decisions. Ready access to targeted climate information at time scales appropriate to on-farm decision making and knowing how best to use this information is of growing importance, particularly in regions subject to increasing climatic variability and risk.
