Smarter Irrigation for Profit 2


Innovation Alley


The cross-industry Smarter Irrigation for Profit Phase 2 program, led by CRDC with support from the Australian Government’s Rural R&D for Profit program, tackled the challenge of reduced water availability by focusing on practical, cost effective strategies to improve water productivity. The project developed new irrigation technologies including new sensors, advanced analytics for scheduling and strategies to reduce water storage evaporation, and cost effective, practical automated irrigation systems. The objective was to improve the profit of over 4000 cotton, dairy, rice, grains and sugar irrigators. As a result of Smarter Irrigation for Profit Phase 2, the cotton industry is commercialising a number of innovations developed through support of the project, including Variwise, SISCOweb and sensor technology.
