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 is specific to the deep sands close to the metro area of Perth WA – although the information may be useful in other regions it may also need to be refined or changed due to the specifics characteristics of those areas. For example if the area has loamy soil with strong water holding capacity that would need to be taken into account for scheduling irrigation, or if irrigation systems other than overhead sprinklers are used then that may affect irrigation scheduling.

The views expressed are not necessarily the views of the Government of Western Australia, nor the Premier’s Water Foundation
