AFTP Course - Irrigation and Water Management

Organised by AFTP

There is an increasing need for efficient and effective irrigation and water management to maximise crop yield and quality whilst making best use of the water available. This is important for meeting the standards required by retailers and consumers; for demonstrating best practice (for example when considering licence renewal); and to minimise costs of production.

By the end of this course participants will be able to:

- Estimate the seasonal and peak irrigation and water requirement for a given crop / soil / climate.
- Evaluate the performance of different types of irrigation and water management systems and recommend how to improve performance
- Select an appropriate irrigation scheduling method for a given crop / soil / climate.
