Gypsum Research Trial

Gypsum Research Trial


  • Scope:

    Establishment and design of gypsum application rate and drip irrigation wetting pattern analysis to:

    • Quantify the effect of surface gypsum application on soil structure decline due to the application of amended CSG water by drip irrigation
    • Test a rapid observation technique to observe wetted patterns under drippers and cross correlate with quantitative measurements to determine if changes in hydraulic conductivity can be observed and hence provide a rapid/low cost assessment technique for monitoring soils structural condition
  • Benefit to Client:

    The project addressed key management and monitoring issues to inform adaptive management actions and provide increased confidence in the sustainability of irrigation system performance.
