Virtual Bus Tour: Low pressure overhead irrigation for water use efficiency
Case study type
Australian Government Reef Programme
Queensland Government Rural Water Use Efficiency Initiative – Irrigation Futures
A 480m centre pivot irrigates 56ha of land, including sloping blocks, on the Muscat family farm at Oakenden. Readings from soil probes guide the programming for each irrigation event. Two years into its operation, Joe and Steve Muscat explain how they have realised energy savings and productivity gains.
