Abstract

Climate forecasting has the potential to have immense value for the Australian sugar industry, especially in regards to the provision of timely warning of excessive rainfall occurring during the critical harvest periods of autumn/early winter and spring/early summer. While statistical climate forecasting approaches have been demonstrated to provide modest skill and value for sugar industry management decisions, key issues in regards to provision of longer lead times and also for those decisions related to harvesting in autumn/early winter remain a problem. Development and application of fully coupled ocean-atmosphere model seasonal (and intraseasonal) climate forecast systems offer major opportunity for improved management decisions and industry cost savings, especially for those periods for which statistical forecast systems
have not proven useful. Integration of recently developed dynamical seasonal climate forecast systems with cane and sugar growth simulation models would also provide considerable value to the sugar industry in terms of the provision of more accurate forecasting of potential yield
and commercial cane sugar (CCS) for this industry.
