The water management toolbox aims to assist production nurseries in on-farm water management. It has a number of excel based calculators for growers to manage nursery irrigation and drainage water supporting the sustainable and responsible use of water resources. The calculators are derived from a range of sources including;
- The publication ‘Managing Water in Plant Nurseries’
- The industry training program Waterwork
- Other industry training resources
The original toolbox is still available at watertoolbox.ngi.org.au however some browsers types have had issues with accessing the calculators.
To facilitate continuing access to these tools, the calculators are available to download below and can be saved for use locally. Note that some of the files require the enabling of macros.
