Seasonal climate forecasts - are we paying attention?

An initial observation is that seasonal climate forecasts are not as widely used on EP as elsewhere, or at least farmers don’t place much weight on them.  As will be discussed in this report, farmers and agronomists were very critical of the Bureau of Meteorology forecasts for a wet winter and early spring in September 2020. The level of critique suggests that more attention might be paid to forecasts than people are prepared to acknowledge.
