Smarter Irrigation 2: New tech integrated smart sensing & automation for cotton
This project aims to increase the adoption of automated irrigation technologies into the Australian cotton industry. Water price and labour costs are fundamental drivers of irrigation decisions and business success. The project will bring together key research and industry partners involved in the automation and sensing areas to integrate automated irrigation technologies into an easy to use and adoptable platform that meets the demands of Australian cotton irrigators. It will also build the capacity of research and industry partners to offer ‘fit for purpose’ automated irrigation platforms.
This project is supported by funding from the Australian Government Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment (DAWE) as part of its Rural R&D for Profit program.
