EOI: Benchmarking water use productivity for irrigated and dryland cotton farming systems

Opportunity for

  • Research service providers with data aggregation, analytics and benchmarking capabilities 
  • Solution providers with remote sensing, data analytics, technology integration capabilities.

Opportunity description

Industry challenge: The Australian cotton industry experiences seasonal variation in water use, but has a long term trend of reduced water use and increased water efficiency per bale. To address social license expectations and support industry sustainability reporting there is a need to assess industry water use.

Current opportunity: As part of industry’s commitment to sustainability reporting, this project will independently measure and report water use efficiency in the cotton industry including exploring opportunities to use remote sensing and existing grower and industry data to automate industry benchmarking and support growers to identify areas for improvement. In addition to reporting on irrigated cotton water use productivity metrics, the project will also report on industry’s dryland water productivity metrics (expected to be finalised by June 2022). This project will also investigate potential collaborations with broader cross industry initiatives for whole of farming system water productivity.
