Summary

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.
