Event: Smarter Irrigation for Profit

Researchers from the Tasmanian Institute of Agriculture (TIA) are helping farmers make smarter data-based decisions to improve water use efficiency and save valuable time and money.

The Smarter Irrigation for Profit project is using sensor technology to collect data on power usage, water use, soil moisture and weather at five pivot-irrigated pasture sites in North and North-West Tasmania.

TIA Dairy Research and Development Leader, Dr James Hills will share the latest findings from the project at a Water for Profit event on 6 September in Launceston.
