Siphon-Less Irrigation Field Day
Learn firsthand from growers and designers who have made the change to siphon-less or bankless irrigation. Hear why they made changes, what designs they have used, what worked well, and how they addressed the challenges they faced in the development.
Irrigation Researchers Malcom Gillies, USQ and Sam North, NSW DPI will provide updates on the research that has taken place with these systems. How bankless systems work, where they are best sited, what soils they are best suited to, and other design recommendations.
Boyce Accountants will also be on hand to discuss what you need to consider when investing in a new siphon-less system.
