Do you want to produce more from your Water? WaterTrackTM is your first step.

The available water for Irrigation is the primary farming input that dictates production in any season. A while farm water balance gives the complete picture of how much water is available to grow the crop and where that water was used and lost.

A whole farm water balance allows you to account for every megalitre of water brought onto the farm or into a group scheme as it is being used in:

  • crop growth
  • seepage and evaporation losses in each channel, drain or storage and
  • deep drainage losses below the crop root zone in the fields.
WaterTrack™ consists of three water balance packages:
  • WaterTrack Rapid™ - Rapid, low cost, total seasonal water use
  • WaterTrack Divider™ - Rapid, low cost, divided or segmented seasonal water use
  • WaterTrack Optimiser™ - Comprehensive detailed daily water use with prediction capability
These packages provide whole farm water balance information at different levels. As the names imply WaterTrack Rapid™ provides a rapid and simple summary of water use performance over a season and total losses while WaterTrack Divider™ provides a summary of seasonal water use performance but divides total losses into storage, channel, drain, operational and in-field losses. WaterTrack Optimiser™ provides a comprehensive daily whole farm or whole system water balance. It provides a full break down of water use and losses for each element plus the ability to predict water use and losses forward to optimise planted area.

Call WaterTrackTM to discuss which package suits you.

WaterTrack Divider™ has been used by NSW DPI and QLD DAFF for Irrigation benchmarking since 2007.
Watertrack Divider™ is a Seasonal Water Use Efficiency Calculator which provides:
