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.
