Travel Fellowship Report

The topic of this travel fellowship was the water-energy-emissions nexus in irrigated agriculture. This fellowship allowed Tamara to meet with world class researchers working on various aspects of this topic, extending her network of industry contacts. A key benefit was the exposure to the latest research and ideas, which will provide an opportunity for these to potentially be adapted to the Australian situation. Similar research carried out as part of her PhD studies and (more)...

Long Term Sustainability of Precision Irrigation

Milestone 9 Final Report

This report details the research identifying the causes and the decline of soil structure under irrigation drippers in the Barossa Valley vineyards. Irrigated vineyards in Australia have seen extensive adoption of drip irrigation. At the start of this project there was concern about the sustainability of drip irrigation based on previous field observations. Drip irrigation conserves water but the concentrated nature of its application was believed to cause serious soil structural (more)...
