Options for mixed farming in southern NSW in 2030

Summary

Climate in southern NSW is variable and predicted to become warmer and potentially drier in coming decades

The long term maintenance and growth in farm productivity is a major priority for the NSW Government, so NSW DPI is assisting land managers to objectively assess and explore appropriate adaptation to these changes.

NSW DPI researchers have developed representative mixed farms at Goolgowi, Condobolin and Temora and used three Global Climate Models (GCMs) to assess a range of potential scenarios on mixed farms for the year 2030.

These sites are part of a broader suite of sites in southern NSW on which such research has been undertaken.

Topics include:

  • Farm impacts by 2030
  • Adaptation options
  • Adaptation results
  • Climate models used
