Abstract

Precision irrigation is still in its infancy both in Australia and internationally. Despite the widespread promotion and adoption of precision agriculture in dry land cropping systems, the concept of precision irrigation or irrigation as a component of precision agricultural systems has not been widely canvassed nor its potential evaluated. This report is the outcome from a NPSI funded review of relevant irrigation research, existing technologies and the use of precision irrigation. It includes an assessment of the role of current irrigation application technologies in precision irrigation, as well as variable rate applications, adaptive control and the sensing and decision support requirements. The review also provides a framework to guide research and development of precision irrigation and its associated sensing, control, and decision support technologies.
