Almond Irrigation Best Practice Management Project


The Almond Irrigation BPM Project was made up of the following components:

  • A drip irrigation performance audit of the Australian almond industry, covering 50 sites across the Australian almond industry (see project summary and results);
  • Evaluation of system performance against other site data, and identification of key factors influencing drip irrigation performance (see project summary and results);
  • Development of a drip irrigation evaluation tool, allowing growers to compare their system performance against the industry audit results;
  • Assemble suitable drip irrigation information and resources to assist the almond industry to attain best practice management of drip irrigation.
