Cotton Australia, with the help of an advisory group of growers, irrigators and DAFF QLD, have developed a short course that can be used for seasonal labour to introduce them to furrow irrigation. It includes a presentation, content and a list of suggested practical activities.
Mitch Abbo from Clyde Agriculture in Bourke recently trialled the course
It also covers basic OH&S, navigating around the farm, irrigation troubleshooting and basic communication. The course was recently piloted by Mitch Abbo from Clyde Agriculture in Bourke. Based on the feedback we will update it with a view to making it available to growers and CGAs to implement either independently or as a group.
