During the drought, flower growers in south-east Queensland were required to reduce overall on-farm water usage to minimise the demand on our dwindling water supplies.
The majority of flower growers are currently highly efficient users of water. This is demonstrated by the use of pressure compensated drip irrigation, climate controlled structures, hydroponic recapture systems and extensive use of soil monitoring equipment. To make additional improvements in water use efficiency growers have investigated the use of recycled drainage water and improved methods for rainwater capture. The re-use of captured drainage water can improve fertiliser use efficiency as the recycled water contains a small nutrient load that can be re-used in the growing system.
