By applying the right amount of water, at the right time, in the right crop, to match that crop’s requirements, sugar growers can reduce their power bills, save water, and reduce runoff to the Great Barrier Reef. As part of a NESP TWQ Hub-funded effort to help growers make these decisions, Dr Yvette Everingham from JCU has applied some technological innovations to real-life situations in the Burdekin region, and the early adopters are reaping the benefits. Check out this video about the project that was recently shared as part of National Science Week celebrations.
