Irrigation Benchmarking of Lateral Move and Centre Pivot Systems in the QMDB
This project, funded through the CRDC and Queensland Government, will continue the collection of seasonal water use data from 40 overhead irrigation systems in the St George, Goondiwindi, Dalby and Inglewood/Texas districts during the 2014-15 cropping year. This project provides the fifth year of data collection for a project originally funded through the Healthy HeadWaters project. The outcome will be a detailed dataset documenting crop water use benchmarks for a range of broadacre crops across five seasons and different overhead irrigation systems within the Queensland Murray-Darling Basin.
