Summary

A direct comparison between a new low pressure centre pivot and a high pressure soft hose irrigator has shown savings of $33 a hectare on Tony, Mark and John Bugeja’s Mackay district farm. The public can see how the farm is fed by recycled water and how all run-off is collected in a dam to ensure the system has environmental as well as economic benefits.
