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:
- Accurate irrigation scheduling is important for maximising crop yield and water productivity.
- The use of soil moisture and evapotranspiration monitoring takes the guesswork out of irrigation scheduling and helps assess irrigation performance.
- Evapotranspiration data, both past and forecasted, is freely available.
- Agriculture Victoria provides evapotranspiration data in a free weekly email service and on the Irrigating Agriculture website.
