ACROSS THE FENCELINE
Real-time Soil Moisture Probe Data in Harden Murrumburrah
A time-tested way that farmers gather information to better manage their land is to look over the fence and see what their neighbours are doing. The Across the Fenceline initiative began in 1999 as a collaboration between HMLG, CSIRO and the Grains Research & Development Corporation.
This project provides local growers with real-time plant-available water measurements from soil moisture probes installed across the Harden district.
This project was funded by Riverina Local Land Services Strategic Partnerships and undertaken in collaboration with Young District and Eastern Riverina Landcare Groups, Murrumbidgee Landcare Inc, Cross Property Planning Groups, Riverina Highland Landcare Network and Temora Agricultural Bureau.
