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:
- Surface drainage from conventional border-check bays on low infiltration soils is slow and causes non-uniform irrigations.
- Installing shallow surface drains on bay surfaces provides rapid surface drainage and more uniform irrigations better suited to precise irrigation scheduling.
- Modified bays require high standard surface drainage and reuse systems.
