Tri-Nut Irrigation Management Workshop

Thursday 15th and Friday 16th February 2024


Through the North East Catchment Management Authority (NECMA) the Hazelnut, Chestnut and Walnut industries received a grant to look at industry irrigation practices and the issues relating to climate variability.

Members would have received copies of one of the reports from the survey conducted and will soon receive additional reports.

What was requested was some training sessions on irrigation.

The Project Team has been able to engage a couple of irrigation specialists from Agriculture Victoria to undertake a training session – Jeremy Giddings and Dennis Watson.

This workshop is designed to provide participants with both theoretical knowledge and practical skills in effective irrigation management and soil analysis. The sessions are aimed at enhancing the participants’ understanding of sustainable irrigation practices and their ability to implement these practices effectively in their own businesses.

The training will run across two half days commencing at 12:30 pm on Thursday 15th and concluding at 1:00 pm on Friday 16th February. A dinner will be held on the Thursday evening, but this will be at participants cost (see registration form).

The venue is The Grand Oaks Resort, Beechworth, Victoria.
