WATER: Evaluating furrow irrigation performance

If you want to produce more bales of cotton per ML of water used, an irrigation evaluation is an important tool
for improving your water use efficiency. The only way to maximise these efficiencies is to measure them.

During the 2006-07 cotton season, 47 furrow irrigation evaluations were successfully conducted by the then Cotton CRC Water Team across nine farms located in the Gwydir and Namoi Valleys. This fact sheet outlines the results.
