WATER: Smarter irrigation technology tour booklet

In Dec 2016, CottonInfo and various partners hosted the Smarter Irrigation Technology Tour, bringing together irrigators from across four commodity sectors - cotton, sugar, rice and dairy - to see automated irrigation in action in northern VIC and southern NSW. 

Tour participants saw various surface irrigation layouts and heard from irrigators who have fully automated their systems. Importantly, they also received an insight int othe decision processes for investing in these systems, how risk is managed, and the adoption of complementary water management tooks and techologies. 

This booklet provides information on all the various sites visited by the tour.
