Final Report: DAN00002 - Permanent beds for sustainable cropping systems on irrigated farms

Plain text source: 
Irrigators, surveyors and designers need to consider field size in relation to potential water flows and implications for access to adequate flows if this style of layout is adopted by increased number of growers within irrigation areas and districts... The results will have immediate value to the rice based farming systems of southern NSW. Beneficiaries of the research will include rice and grain growers within rice based farming systems, advisory and commercial agronomists, irrigation surveyors and designers, irrigation distribution companies, and land and water management plan implementers operating in these areas... The aim of the project was to increase the sustainability, resource use efficiency, yield and profitability of rice-based cropping systems through improved soil, water and nutrient management using permanent raised bed systems...
