Separating almond evapotranspiration into soil water evaporation and crop transpiration

Separating Almond Evapotranspiration

The estimation of crop water use is a key input into much of the software which supports irrigation management. The most common method used to derive this estimate is to calculate it from weather data and coefficients specific to crop type and growing…

Defining precision irrigation

a new approach to irrigation management

Despite the widespread promotion and adoption of precision agriculture in dry-land cropping systems, the concept of irrigation being part of precision agricultural systems is still getting off the ground, both in Australia and internationally. There is currently no cohesive framework available to guide research, development or adoption of precision irrigation and its associated support technologies. This project is reviewing irrigation research, existing technologies and the use of precision (more)...

Salinity management practice guidelines

Managing root-zone salinity for irrigated horticultural crops in winter rainfall zones of Australia

A better understanding of plant requirements and the highly efficient management of water has led irrigators to apply water to accurately meet crop needs. This has meant a considerable reduction in the amount of water flushing through the root-zone. As a result, soil salinity levels have risen. Current drought conditions and low water allocations are likely to result in even less water being used to flush salts from the root-zone. The declining quality of water resources means that actively (more)...
