The North West Irrigation Australia Regional Committee and CottonInfo are holding a field day in Moree on Wednesday 6 February 2019 to look at siphon-less channel irrigation layouts.
Learn firsthand from growers and designers who have made the change to siphon-less irrigation. Hear why they made changes, what designs they have used, what worked well, and how they addressed the challenges they faced in the development. Irrigation researchers Malcolm Gillies (USQ) and Sam North (NSW DPI) will provide updates on the research that has taken place with these systems. How bankless systems work, where they are best sited, what soils they are best suited to, and other design recommendations. Boyce Chartered Accountants will also be on hand to discuss what you need to consider wheninvesting in a new siphon-less system.
Date: Wednesday 6 February 2019
Time: 7:30am bus departure (Moree Racecourse), for 8:30am start
Location: "Deere Park" Combadello Rd Moree
