Surface irrigation remains the best option

The final report of a project led by Dr Mike McCarthy, Principal Scientist with the South Australian Research and Development Institute (SARDI)*, shows that there is no value in going underground except possibly in times of extreme and sustained water shortages.‘We couldn’t demonstrate any improvement in yield or water use savings by switching to sub-surface irrigation, which was contrary to what we had been led to believe’, Dr McCarthy said. ‘In fact, there was actually a yield penalty in going to sub-surface at the normal rates of irrigation that growers

A recent Independent article made the claim that “we will all be drinking orange wine in 2017”. Just how silly a claim is this? Depending on who you’re talking to, orange wine is either “a waste of time” or “the wine we’ll all be drinking in 2017” Well, fairly silly. Though only slightly sillier than the Indie‘s standfirst which summarises orange wine as “refreshing like white with the complexities of red” – one imagines the sub editor is more of a beer drinker… For every orange wines eulogist there is
