Advice concerning the significance and control of the more common pests, or potential pests, of these crops is presented... Value of the crop (high value crops cannot sustain too much damage as a small loss in yield or quality could mean a large financial loss), the cost of the spray and its application and the likely yield or quality benefit gained from control... Crop monitoring Ongoing monitoring of crops and surrounding vegetation is essential to determine the presence of both pests and predators, and when, if any, intervention is required to keep pests at an acceptable level or, if feasible, boost predator numbers by introducing them into the system...

The core objectives of the project are to increase the return per unit of applied water and reduce the environmental impact of irrigation in the project area through the roll out of precision irrigation systems that allow the irrigators to more precisely match water application to crop water needs... The project will incorporate: soil moisture and climate sensors to monitor the water balance in their soils and crops and make decisions about when to irrigate and how much and at what rate to apply water to their fields; and control systems and storages to provide users with greater control over the rate and timing of irrigation applications... CICL proposes to overcome these barriers by: providing a significant up-front cost subsidy for the deployment of the infrastructure for precision irrigation systems; avoiding the need for individual irrigators to acquire, deploy and maintain the technologies by offering a full service precision irrigation package that will be deployed and maintained by CICL and partner organisations; providing the near on-demand water supply service to the farm gate that is required in order to precisely match water; and most importantly, training and educating irrigators in the use of precision irrigation technologies and providing water balance and crop information in a user friendly format...
