This is the second in a series of webinars focusing on Getting the “Inside Edge” in grazing land management.

Queensland (like all of Australia) is subject to a highly variable climate, but in terms of rainfall or pasture growth, how do we rate one year from another?

For over 20 years our eye-catching multi-map poster view of Australian rainfall has been offered to grazing land managers (graziers, extension practitioners, consultants and researchers) operating in rural Australia via the Queensland Government’s Long Paddock website (https://www.longpaddock.qld.gov.au/). These maps demonstrate the variability of any one year compared to 128 years of historical data records. Recently, additional posters have been created to provide multi-year mapping information on “wet” and “dry” sequence periods for Queensland, pasture production and past tropical cyclones.

In this webinar, Grant Stone (Principal Scientist with the Department of Environment and Science) will:

• explain components and discuss trends for the well-known Australian variable rainfall poster
• introduce and discuss patterns for the new counterparts;
• outline how and where to access them; and
• introduce you to the new online multi map-app.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
