Software packages can model water flows, quantify existing drainage issues, calculate lost revenue, design drainage solutions and provide complete machine control designs.. Retrieving data will generally involve inserting a USB stick into the guidance screen, or removing a flash card and extracting data using a card reader... The GPS guidance and collected elevation data allow ease of construction and ensure that the drains have consistent slope without moving large quantities of dirt...

According to satellite images, over 100,000 ha of land was inundated from the Condamine River due to flooding in early 2011... Contour banks were poorly maintained due to years of drought conditions... Contours running down a hill generally spread the flow of water and reduce flow rates, though with the intensity of the flooding this year, this was not always the case...

Many catchment management plans have been prepared... Land use change to reduce leakage This research shows that drainage from cropping systems can be greatly reduced by replacing long fallow or continuous wheat systems with wheat/sorghum opportunity cropping or continuous sorghum... It has been found that black pointed wheat grain actually germinates faster than normal grain and is predisposed to sprouting should further rainfall occur...
