Smarter Irrigation 2: Improved irrigation system selection and operation for increased sugarcane productivity and profitability

Factors such as yield response to irrigation, water availability, energy and water costs all impact financial viability. This project aims to improve the capability of growers and extension staff to use irrigation information and tools and make cost effective irrigation decisions through on farm demonstration.
