Irrigators across the Australian Cotton Industry utilise large on-farm storages to capture irregular water supplies. Commercially available measurement technology was employed to measure the losses from over 125 storages across the industry. Mean seepage losses were found to be very low (2.59mm/day), although some individual losses were high. However, for a selection of 10 farms, storage losses still accounted for 79% of all on-farm losses.
