Faster irrigation improves water use efficiency

Historically, the majority of the Bryants farm was permanent pasture, but over the past 10 years, reduced water allocations have seen an increased reliance on annually sown pastures and winter cereals.

A few simple changes to the irrigation system have enabled the Bryants to dramatically improve water use efficiency – by increasing the flow rate of water along their irritation bays, watering times have been cut in half, as has the amount of water used per hectare.
