KMSI is the Knowledge Management System for Irrigation, developed by the National Centre for Engineering in Agriculture with funds provided by the Queensland Government as part of the South East Queensland Irrigation Futures project.
The Annual Report produced by HAL covers a summary of projects and detail of the various projects that have been funded from the Nursery Industry levy or Voluntary Contributions that have received matched funding investment from the Federal Government. The final reports for these projects can be accessed from the Final Report section of the website by inputing the Project Number in the search box.
The purpose of the Energy Savers program is to assist farmers in reducing energy costs by supporting the accelerated delivery of improvements in on-farm energy use.
The program will provide information on the benefits of adopting new and more efficient technologies and provide the necessary tools to manage and reduce electricity usage.
One of the most valuable attributes of a greenhouse is the opportunity to manage the internal environment to achieve optimal crop productivity. Energy is a critical component in this objective and is increasingly one of the key factors in greenhouse profitability. The aim of this project was to make it easier for greenhouse growers to reduce costs and carbon emissions and to make better energy (heating) investment decisions. This was achieved by giving growers easy to use and reliable tools for finding ways to save energy and by evaluating and demonstrating the cost to benefit of alternate energy systems.
