Irrigation Automation with Dr Alison McCarthy

Irrigation Automation in Agriculture

Dr Alison McCarthy from University Southern Qld talks about her projects in Dairy and Cotton where she has developed the VARIwise software which is able to link field sensor information from multiple sources to generate an irrigation prescription. The software enables communication with commercially available variable rate irrigation systems. Irrigation can then be applied to the field so that there are no areas of either over or under irrigation. This system enables optimised irrigation resulting in 5-10 % improvement in yield, with additional water and labour savings.
