Abstract

Agriculture is an important component of Tasmania’s economy. Projected changes to the Tasmanian climate due to rising greenhouse gases will have significant impacts on agricultural enterprises at farm, industry and regional scales.

Temperature has historically been a major driver for the choice and management of crops and pastures. Temperatures across the state are projected to increase by around 2.9 °C by the end of the century under the high greenhouse gas emissions scenario.
