A simulation framework, VARIwise, is being developed to evaluate irrigation control strategies for lateral moves and centre pivots. VARIwise allows for field scale variations in input parameters and will simulate various levels of control strategies for site-specific irrigation at different spatial scales. The simulation model is presently OZCOT. The work reported on this poster provides a preliminary demonstration of the framework for conceptual purposes only.
