‘Farm water planning and management’ will be the focus of the next webinar in the Gippsland Spring Ag Chat series to be held on Tuesday 22 September at 7pm.
The webinar series is targeting landholders in Central and East Gippsland and follows the successful winter ag chat webinars.
Agriculture Victoria Land Management Extension Officer Greg Bekker said the webinar will cover a number of important farm water planning and management issues.
“Ultimately, the goal of farm water planning is to have the water you need, where you need it, when you need it and to take account of the risks associated with water supply reliability,” Mr Bekker said.
The following topics will be covered in the hour-long webinar:
- Rainfall history – a snapshot of some of the East Gippsland area
- Challenges managing farm water
- Calculating your farm water requirements
- Solutions to farm water management
- Water quality
- Farm water design — a case study.
