WEATHER is possibly the biggest challenge out there for growers, and in the past few years alone, we have seen one of the hottest summers on record in 2018, one of the mildest and wettest winters in 2019, and two exceptionally dry springs in a row.

Alice Dyer looks at how weather patterns are changing, what this means for crops, and how growers can be more resilient to the changing climate by improving soil health and using data to farm better in the latest 'Crop it Like It’s Hot' podcast, supplied by organisers of the CropTec show.

In this episode of Crop it Like It’s Hot, Alice Dyer finds out how weather patterns are changing, what this means for the crops we grow, and how we as farmers can be more resilient to the changing climate by improving soil health and using data to farm better.
