Senior Principal Research Scientist, Agriculture Flagship, Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation, Australia
Zvi Hochman’s work focuses on managing climate-related crop production risk and exploring productivity frontiers in rainfed cropping systems. He investigates how to best quantify and map the gap between actual and potential yield among wheat fields in Australia’s rainfed environments, contributing to the Global Yield Gap and Water Productivity Atlas project. His other research areas include climate smart farming in southern and southeast Asia and environmental and management-based interactions of wheat varieties in Australia.
Hochman previously served as a research agronomist for 16 years with the New South Wales Department of Agriculture.
He holds a doctorate in agriculture from the University of Sydney.
