TIA is holding an irrigation field day at Meander. The field day is part of the Beyond Water Smart project. Farmers in the Meander region have been involved in a pilot irrigation focus farm and discussion and will be discussing how they have (or will be) making changes to their irrigation system or practices to improve their irrigation efficiency. Irrigation system design will be another topic discussed at the field day. James Hills and David McLaren (TIA) will highlight the important factors that need to be considered when designing or upgrading an irrigation system. The block being developed by Brian and Michele Lawrence will be used as the case study to work through designing an irrigation system. See the flyer for more details.
