There has been increasing interest in recent years in overhead irrigation systems within Australia. This has been in response to the potential water and labour savings of these systems compared to existing irrigation systems.
Graham Harris, Queensland Government Agri-Science, said that “There is a significant capital outlay in the purchase of these systems so it is important to get it right.

The production of the DVD has been funded through the Australian Government’s Water for the Future initiative and the Queensland’s Government Rural Water Use Efficiency 4 Program through the Cotton Catchment Communities CRC. Through this support the DVD is available free to Australian residents.
