Cyclones across northern Australia have caused hundreds of millions of dollars’ worth of damage to tropical primary industries over the past several decades. Industries affected include tropical tree crops, forestry and animal-based industries. With the threat of increasing cyclonic activity as a result of climate change, the economic sustainability, employment opportunities and rural communities supported these primary industries may be under threat without changes to production practices.

This project summary outlines the production practices or technologies that primary producers can use to minimise the damage cyclonic winds cause to their businesses.
