With diminishing water supplies, the economics of growing crops have been challenged and one solution to this is the adoption of Subsurface Drip Irrigation (SDI).
Dean & Tracy Rockemer are holding a field day to demonstrate their upgraded drip irrigation system which will save them 35 million litres of water/year. This upgraded system was made possible through a Round 2 Community Water Grant.
A guest speaker from Netafim will be there on the day.
When: Wednesday 20th February 2008
Where: Dean & Tracy Rockemers, 9484 Burnett Highway, Booubyjan, via Goomeri
At: 1:30pm registration for a 2:00pm start

The event is supported by Burnett Mary Regional Group, South East Burnett Landcare, Australian Government Water Fund Community Water Grants, Netafim and BGA Irrigation.
