Rolling over each colour-coded region will display the region’s name. Clicking on a region will show more information about that region, including a list of relevant documents from our knowledge base. Read more about the Profitable Perennials Regions
Southern Australia can be divided into four broad agro-climatic regions:
Within these broad regions further division is necessary to determine the best perennial plant options. Therefore, these regions have been divided into 12 regions based on rainfall (including occurrence of summer rain), minimum winter temperatures, soil type and soil pH.
Within these 12 regions, the dominant climatic feature varies. For example, in WA average annual rainfall is the dominant feature and, within each region, mean monthly temperatures will vary, being warmer in the north and cooler in the south.
The twelve regions are:
