The projects include:
- Development and validation of soil amelioration and agronomic practices to realise the genetic potential of grain crops grown under a high yield potential irrigated environment in the southern and northern regions
- Optimising farm scale returns from irrigated grains: maximising dollar return per megalitre of water.
The overall objective of the project is that by June 2023, 40% of irrigated grain growers in the Southern Murray Darling Basin have the knowledge, confidence and tools required to optimise farm scale returns through increased yield and allocation of water resources. To achieve this objective, irrigation discussion groups are part of the suite of new research.

project were subject to cooler more mild spring temperatures, ideally geared for the project team to
explore the upper range of yield potential for the crops tested. Read the full guiedlines
