The 180 hectare farm, located in the Mackay area, cultivates sugar cane. For irrigation, the farm mainly relies on rainfall supplemented by a centre pivot and hard hose irrigation system which sources water from a creek. The operation of the irrigation system varies according to the season and the weather conditions.
The volume of water delivered to the sugar cane changes according to the growth stage and is varied by managing the irrigation time as the system delivers a constant flow of water.
Electricity consumption is mainly for irrigation purposes, followed next by the shed/workshop.
