NY98015 - Demonstration of Water Management Best Practice in Retail Nurseries

This project was set up to demonstrate the use of best irrigation practice on co-operating retail nurseries in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth and to extend the information generated at these nurseries to the retail industry through field days, publications and allied associations. Although some nurseries saw benefit in the system in water and labour savings, this project illustrated that there is a totally different attitude to plants and water use by retail and production nurseries.
