Work by two different groups within the former CRCIF has shown: (i) the energy costs of the various irrigation application systems including the 'efficient' pressurised systems, and (ii) the irrigation efficiency gains possible with improved surface irrigation. Combining the data from these two sources provides a compelling case for considering surface irrigation with real-time optimisation and control as the ultimate irrigation method for both energy and water use efficieny.
