Abstract

Irrigated grain growers will have access to a new suite of knowledge regarding agronomy, soils and the economics of irrigation thanks to a range of GRDC investments that have recently been contracted.

Three linked investments will cover a range of issues facing irrigators. They are:

. "Development and validation of soil amelioration and agronomic practices to realise the genetic potential of grain crops grown under a high yield potential, irrigated environment in the northern and southern regions", led by FAR Australia;

. "Optimising farm scale returns from irrigated grains: maximising dollar return per megalitre of water", led by the University of Tasmania; and

. "Facilitated action learning groups to support profitable irrigated farming systems in the northern and southern regions", led by the Irrigated Cropping Council (ICC).
