Field Notes, powered by KPMG, is a weekly news update on news nationally and globally from the agri-food sector.
A new report by two National Science Challenges suggests that all primary sectors must be faster in adopting long-term strategies to adapt to a changing climate. The research outlines the potential impacts of climate change on a range of areas and helps to identify appropriate adaption measures. The research is hoped to encourage strategic adaption of things such as diversifying cultivars, shifting sowing dates and planning additional shade and shelter. Pressure on freshwater is expected to increase which will affect all sectors whilst higher temperature and extreme weather events will adversely affect stock and land.
