Efficient Sand Integration



Irrigating efficiently is important for achieving high yield and quality and for minimising effects on the environment.

Under-irrigation will compromise yields while over-irrigation can affect root quality, promote excessive fertiliser use, and possibly result in pollution of groundwater and surface water.

The following sections give guideline crop factors for irrigating specific vegetable crops. This information is derived from Department of Agriculture and Food Research conducted on the sandy soils of the Swan Coastal Plain.
