|Pre-order your copy of SRA’s 2014 Irrigation of Sugarcane Manual
In many districts irrigation is one of the key drivers to maximising productivity. Research trials have consistently shown that it is possible to grow 10 tonnes of cane for each ML of irrigation water applied.
Available in November this new industry resource provides useful information to help growers experienced in irrigation, and those new to irrigation practices, make informed decisions about irrigating to maximise on-farm yield.
The manual provides easy to follow advice on soil water; the response of sugarcane to irrigation; water quality; irrigation system and scheduling; drainage; and the economics of irrigation.
