• Increasing standing stubble biomass can increase the severity and duration of frost events. • Greater frost severity and decreased yield is associated with more stubble in frost prone parts of the landscape. • The exact amount or orientation of stubble which increases the severity of frost has not been well quantified and requires further research
To quantify the impact of stubble on the extent, severity and duration of frost and determine its effect on canopy temperature and grain yield.
