The take home messages from this GRDC funded research are below. Please access the full paper via the link below for methodology, references, acknowledgements and discussion.
Take home messages from the paper include:
- Consistent high yields can be achieved with quick draining surface irrigation systems.
- Individually draining bays into a field drain OR skip-watering should be considered if water is on bays for longer than 10 hours. This is a good option for bankless channels on flat terrain (<1:1000) which suffer from water backing up.
