Farm 6 NQ Case Study RWUE
The efficient and profitable production of turf grass involves several farm management practices that directly and indirectly influence productivity, energy and water use.The introduction of precision agriculture techniques and sophisticated technologies, as well as adopting modern management practicescan help to improve production, but getting the balance right does not always come easy.
An irrigation system involves many components, each influencing the efficiency of the whole system, correcting one issue or changing one component without considering the system as a whole can compound problems and mask other issues. Assessing an irrigation system and the associated management practices can help to identify any hidden issues that are affecting productivity and what options or actions can be taken to increase productivity and efficiency while reducing costs. Without an understanding of how all factors affect production, the right decision at the wrong time can create a false positive.
This case study discusses how assessing the irrigation system and management practices can highlight inefficiencies, expose underlying problems, and identify good practices, as well as increase productivity.Case Study Farm 6
