Abstract

This scoping study is designed to advance high standards of precision in management of water and develop efficient methods of irrigation prescription to reduce losses and improve water use efficiency. All aspects of irrigation process are considered in this study to include various components of farm water storage and distribution systems to facilitate accurate accounting of water. In this study, we will attempt to: * Identify key attributes and specifications for various tools (sensors and control systems) for precision irrigation management; * Develop strategies to fill current gaps in the functionality of various tools and technology available for irrigation and * Prioritise opportunities to refine and/or develop new tools and technology to increase on-farm precision and meet off-farm hydrology needs.
