Improved Irrigation and System Selection for Increased Sugarcane Productivity and Profitability

The ‘Improved Irrigation and System Selection for Increased Sugarcane Productivity and Profitability’ Project is well underway with training workshops held in the Tablelands region near Mareeba, the Burdekin, the central region around Mackay and Proserpine and in the southern region arounds Childers and Bundaberg. The most recent training sessions focused on pumping and pump efficiency. Other training sessions have provided information designed to improve participants understanding of soil and water holding capacity, water productivity and scheduling using soil moisture probes, all of which will help extension staff and growers improve their production.

This project is a joint initiative of Sugar Research Australia and the University of Southern Queensland with support from the Australian Government Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment as part of the Rural R&D for Profit Program.
