Case Study

Smart sensing and automation in bankless irrigation – rice. A grower’s experience.

Smart sensor technology feeds information from field sensors to irrigation outlets to control the timing and volume of water required for a crop. In this case study Riverina irrigator Darrell Fiddler discusses the benefits and challenges of smart sensing and automation. “Smart sensors in the field takes the guesswork out of whether I should or shouldn’t water and it’s another tool that can help us manage water orders, staffing levels or even the timing around having to spray a paddock before we irrigate. We can do that a lot better thanks to the smart sensing”.
