Almond irrigation best practice management (AL17004)
What’s it all about?
This investment is all about improving irrigation system performance across the Australian almond industry. A key component of the work is an audit of current irrigation system performance across major almond production regions, including through on-farm testing of irrigation valves and surveys with growers about irrigation maintenance schedules and their implementation. This information will be used to deliver a picture of potential issues, opportunities for improvement, and best practice management when it comes to implementing suitable and rigorous maintenance schedules and activities.
This project is a strategic levy investment in the Hort Innovation Almond Fund
