WaterTrack Optimiser™ is a comprehensive water balance model which enables a farmer to track where their precious water is being used:
growing the crop,
evaporation and seepage in the soil,
evaporation and seepage in channels and drains, and
evaporation and seepage from farm dams.
Once the model is setup key infrastructure and management changes can be modeled such as:
Splitting a large storage into two cells
Purchasing an additional water license
Only watering fields close to the storage to limit transmission losses
Clay lining a storage to reduce seepage
Purchasing extra land
Importantly WaterTrack Optimiser will show the benefit in both Volume of Water & Extra Production.
Added to this is the real power of WaterTrack Optimiser™
The simulation capabilities allow you to predict forward by modeling a scenario using historical weather data from any year – Wet, Dry, or Average.
This allows important decisions to be made ahead of time before they become critical. Decisions such as:
How much should I plant?
How much water do I need?
What is the benefit of purchasing an extra water license?
What impacts will water reforms have on my productivity?
The season is tougher than expected. Will I make to harvest? Should I plough in some of my crop?
How can I maximize PROFIT PER MEGELITRE?
