Efficient Sand Integration


This site was made possible by funding from the Western Australian Government via a Premier’s Water Foundation funded project titled A web-based expert system for efficient vegetable irrigation on sands.

The information on this site was supplied by the Western Australian Department of Agriculture which has conducted extensive industry supported research to develop best management practices for a range of vegetable crops grown on the sands of the Swan Coastal Plain.
