Optimisation of Siphon-less tail water back design in 2021-2022

This CottonInfo video provides an overall summary and wrap-up of the 2021/22 season trial that looked at the efficiency of the siphon-less tailwater backup irrigation design at the St George property, ‘Thuraggi Overflow’. We hear from Dr Malcolm Gillies from the University of Southern Queensland, growers Craig Saunders and Lucas Weursching, and Regional Extension Officer, Andrew McKay. The project has been a partnership between CottonInfo, the Gwydir Valley Irrigators Association (GVIA), NSW DPI, University of Southern Queensland, Padman Stops and Glenn Lyons. It is also supported by the Australian Government through the Rural R&D for Profit Program.
