Welcome to the first issue of NRM on Farms for 2017.

As I write this, NSW is sweltering in a heatwave and could experience its hottest February day on record. (http://media.bom.gov.au/releases/336/extreme-heatwave-conditions-could-break-records/)

  • 2016 was the world’s warmest year on record.
  • The seasonal outlook is for warmer and drier weather than average.
  • ENSO, SOI and IOD are all in neutral phase.
