Rotation crops that are profitable in their own right present the opportunity for more dynamic cropping systems to evolve and will enhance the resilience of irrigated cropping enterprises to seasonal fluctuations in commodity prices and irrigation allocations... While cotton production in rotation with winter cereals is already common place, the majority of cereal crops currently grown..... In summary the project will co-ordinate, publish and deliver "Best Practices Guidelines for Irrigated Wheat in the Northern Region"...

Daily ETc values are calculated for every day in the weather record, which spans from 1957 to 2008... Growing seasons are grouped according to seasonal rainfall and are classified as "DRY", "WET", and "NORMAL", for which separate statistics for seasonal ETc, rainfall and irrigation requirements are produced... Users can compare scenarios and by changing inputs such as: sowing date, crop, crop growth pattern, location, irrigation efficiency, rainfall efficiency, and soil water deficit at which to irrigate...

Yield Prophet , using APSIM modelling, simulates soil water, crop water use and N use on a daily basis and provides a risk assessment, through probability, of achieving a target yield.. (i) to compare soil water information provided by soil moisture probes vs. modelled outcomes from APSIM (Yield Prophet ) (ii) to evaluate soil moisture probes vs. modelled outcomes for day to day paddock management decisions.. Soil moisture probes do not provide information on soil/crop N status, and some kind of N budget is still required when deciding on whether the crop needs additional N in relation to how much water the crop has available to it...
