Smarter Irrigation 2: Monitoring and Evaluation case studies and analysis
Smarter Irrigation for Profit 2 (SIP2) is a partnership between the irrigation industries of sugar, cotton, grains, dairy and rice, research organisations and farmer groups.
The objective of the program is to improve the profit of over 4,000 irrigators. It has 14 sub-projects covering three main components:
Development of new irrigation technologies including new sensors, advanced analytics to improve irrigation scheduling and strategies to reduce water storage evaporation.
Cost effective, practical automated irrigation systems for cotton, rice, sugar and dairy.
Closing the irrigation productivity yield gap for cotton, rice, dairy, sugar and grains irrigators through a network of 46 farmer led optimised irrigation sites and key learning sites located on commercial farms across Australia.
This project is focussed on providing an objective insight into the potential economic impact of the program and provide case studies and analysis of the outcomes.
