Irrigators can now access the most up-to-date information and advice online – anywhere, anytime.
ExtensionAUS™, partnering with Agriculture Victoria's Irrigation Services, has launched a new webpage Irrigating Agriculture – a free and comprehensive virtual resource for agricultural irrigators.
The website delivers the latest irrigation practices and management techniques and technologies with a keen focus on efficiency.
Specialist areas of the site include weekly irrigation requirements to assist and improve irrigation scheduling, seasonal risk forecasting, water resource updates for the Murray and Campaspe systems, and Whole Farm Plan incentives information.
The page is designed to give easy access to relevant and up to date information to irrigators and the irrigation industry, promoting discussion and information sharing along the way.
Irrigators can access ExtensionAUS™ Irrigating Agriculture on their preferred device through multiple channels such as the website or social media channels Facebook and Twitter.
Using social media will ensure a wide reach and provides feedback and a talking point on articles put up on the site.
Irrigation Program Manager Greg Turner said the team was looking forward to feedback from irrigators who used the site.
"It's hoped we can continue to add the best information available. Our aim is to make Irrigating Agriculture a valuable online tool available to irrigators," Dr Turner said.
The site also acts as a gateway to all of Agriculture Victoria's Irrigation services.
