Dr Malcolm Gillies and Professor Joseph Foley from the University of Southern Qld talk about irrigation performance and how SISCOweb can be used to optimised surface irrigation. Optimised surface irrigation can occur where-ever an understanding of irrigation inflow rates into furrows or bays can be measured, and the corresponding irrigation water advance times down the field can be captured during the irrigation event. The SISCOweb processes available today determine the infiltration curve for the field during the irrigation event, and then optimise for the best time to cut-off the irrigation ..read more

1. Scaling irrigation management to support whole farm operations
The SIP2 Podcast
by Smarter Irrigation for Profit - Phase II
1y ago
Gravity fed flood irrigation systems are an important part of the dairy industry in Victoria. The SIP2 researchers from Agriculture Victoria; Andy McAllister, Amjed Hussain and Des Whitfield talk about their work with producers to develop a more efficient whole farm gravity fed irrigation system. They are using satellite-based irrigation scheduling and new irrigation bay designs. This approach relies on minimal use of in-field sensors and will integrate farm irrigation scheduling with automated management of irrigation re-use systems. This will enable producers to make better irrigation and gr ..read more

Plant Based Sensing - Optimising irrigation timing in limited water cotton systems
The SIP2 Podcast
by Smarter Irrigation for Profit - Phase II
1y ago
Using plant bases sensing to monitor plant stress have been researched for many years, the challenge was determining how to apply the information so it could be of practical benefit to irrigators. Investment by the CRDC and CSIRO into the use of Canopy Temperature Sensors in cotton have enable the technology to be commercialised with agtech company GoannaAg. The technology can improve irrigation scheduling in both a fully irrigated and a partially irrigated cotton crop GUESTS Dr Hiz Jamali - Research Scientist with CSIRO Agriculture and Food Peter Lennox - Cotton Grower - Gunnedah For more inf ..read more
