Understanding and managing climate change
Some major climate related risks to cherry production are placed into context using available knowledge.
The risks are analysed using historic weather and climate information for 25 cherry producing locations in Australia.
How these risks may change if global temperature increased by up to 2°C, or if rainfall decreased by 10% are examined.
Management options that may reduce the impact of the risks are provided. This list is not exhaustive and other options may be available.
