Agriculture, Horticulture, Viticulture & Turf Farms

The productivity, feasibility and sustainability of agriculture, horticulture, viticulture and turf farms is largely controlled by the soils in which they are grown, local climate, the availability of irrigation water, and fertiliser additions. An understanding of soil-water dynamics and the nutrient retention capacity of the soils is therefore required to determine the optimal irrigation and fertiliser requirements for a particular crop/species. Without this knowledge, there is a risk that over irrigation or fertiliser application may occur, which represents a loss of resource (and money) and potential impact on the surrounding environment.
