TF6.6.4 - Maximising the efficacy of variable rate technology to reduce nutrient use and sediment transport in vegetable and melon production (Burdekin and Wet Tropics)
Project aim: The project contributes to the Department of Environment and Heritage Protection‘s strategic plan objective to reduce pollutant runoff from priority reef catchments and meet the Great Barrier Reef Water Science Taskforce’s recommendations by demonstrating that precision agriculture and variable rate technology can successfully and precisely manage irrigated horticulture productions systems in critical Great Barrier Reef Catchments. Using commercial demonstration sites this project will specifically investigate precise technologies to improve adoption of technologies that reduce and/or optimise nitrogen and phosphorous, to identify soil and land constraints to match farming practices and determine practical management strategies to minimise sediment runoff.
