Soil and irrigation management

How to improve water use efficiency?

Dr Phillip Myburgh, an irrigation specialist from the Agricultural Research Council (ARC), on why efficient irrigation water use is critical for the table grape industry?

  • Water resources are generally limited in most grape growing regions, and inconsistent rainfall causes periodic droughts.
  • This scenario may worsen if climate change reduces rainfall and increases air temperature.
