The RADS program had a strong technology focus and information generated aimed to:
• Identify and test component tools and technology that improve water management strategies.
• Assess the effect of precision irrigation on crop response and system performance.
• Introduce technologies such as decision support systems, proximal sensing, and energy calculators to provide opportunities for improved risk management, especially under climate variability and change impacts.
• Improve information regarding infield variability to support decisions and risk reduction potential.
• Provide the basis for change in management practices and thus motivate for adoption of irrigation innovation.
