Abstract

The South-East Queensland Irrigation Futures (SEQIF) Research and Development Support (RADS) project was funded by the Queensland Department of Environment and Resource
Management (DERM) over three years to provide research and technical support to the SEQIF Industry Development Officers (IDOs) and SEQ Catchment staff.
The key objectives were to:
- provide research and development outcomes that will underpin a 10% improvement in water use efficiency by 2009 for SEQIF,
- provide the basis for changes in on-farm water management practices and/or take-up of more water efficient equipment and operations through Research and Development (R&D),
- assist in the uptake of farm management systems through better definition of best management practices and efficiency targets, and
- assist grower involvement in SEQIF by providing up to date research for SEQIF stakeholders by conducting research at a local level while having access to the broader
research framework of the CRC for Irrigation Futures (CRCIF)
at a national level.
