Farm 2 SEQ Case Study RWUE
Turfgrass producers face increasing competition for scarce water resources and rising costs of buying and applying water to production areas. The Rural Water Use Efficiency – Irrigation Futures (RWUE-IF) project is a timely collaboration between the Queensland Government and Turf Queensland to foster practice change amongst irrigators with the goal of improving on-farm water use and increasing productivity. Turf production is a broad acre scale endeavour, often with tight time frames and an extremely valuable final product. This places unique pressures on producers looking to implement savings in water, energy and fertiliser.
