Farm 3 SEQ Case Study RWUE

< Back

 Turfgrass producers face increasing competition for scarce water resources and rising costs of buying and applying water to production areas. The Rural Water Use Efficiency – Irrigation Futures (RWUE-IF) project is a timely collaboration between the Queensland Government and Turf Queensland to help irrigators improve on-farm water use and increase productivity. This project looked at the effect of implementing precision irrigation techniques on a new farm, the location of the pilot site. On this farm, the manager made a commitment to using fertigation in a new centre pivot irrigator with a view to improving turfgrass productivity and profitability and conserving resources
