  • Bange, Michael; Hizbullah, Jamali (CSIRO Agriculture and Food, 2018-06-30)
    Cotton production in Australia is limited by the lack of water availability in most years. This project aimed to enable growers to adapt and tailor their irrigations to an uncertain future climate and water availability ...
  • White, Monique (Monique Aucote Consulting, 2018-06-30)
    Following the establishment phase of the Smarter Irrigation for Profit project, a Rural R&D for Profit initiative, participants identified that one of the key barriers to farmers using scheduling tools is the diversity ...
  • Roth, Guy (Roth Rural, 2017-06-30)
    The 'Tales from Cotton' Tour was designed as a cross-sector shared learning experience between the cotton and dairy industries on water and energy use efficiency. The event was an activity of the Smarter Irrigation for ...
  • Quarisa, Iva; Gall, Lou; Montgomery, Janelle (New South Wales Department of Primary Industries, 2017-06-30)
    This funding supported the tour of a number of southern irrigators as part of the Maximising On-Farm Irrigation Profitability project, a sub-project under the Smarter Irrigation for Profit project. A group of irrigators ...
  • Montgomery, Janelle (New South Wales Department of Primary Industries, 2017-06-30)
    The purpose of the 2016 Smarter Irrigation Technology Tour (an intensive three day tour to Northern Victoria and Southern NSW) had several objectives. To examine a range of surface irrigation layouts, the hydraulics, ...
  • Gall, Lou (Gwydir Valley Irrigators Association Inc., 2018-12-30)
