The BettaCrop database currently has information for over 10,000 paddocks and includes over 120 current growers across northern, central and southern areas of NSW. Analysis of the database is conducted each year and is able to provide comparisons of various agronomic and management factors that contribute to achieving high water use efficiency (WUE)... The project commenced in July 2008, and will examine the effects of management practices on WUE. Soil water characteristics will be determined and WUE will be calculated and modelled for the growing season... Passioura & Angus also state that tactical management has the potential to increase yields in favourable seasons with little effect on yields in poor seasons...
