CLIMATE KELPIE IS A CREATION OF THE MANAGING CLIMATE VARIABILITY R&D PROGRAM.

Climate is the biggest individual driver of production variability in agriculture, and accounts for one-third to two-thirds of annual global crop yield variability.
Over two decades, the Managing Climate Variability Program (MCV) has been the lead research and development program in Australia for providing climate knowledge to primary
producers and natural resource managers.
