The First MyResearchAgro Topic – Water Use Efficiency


by | May 8, 2018

Welcome to the first MyResearchAgro topic, I am thrilled to be here and hope you will join me for years to come, to dig deep into what matters for you, to make farming better.

Water Use Efficiency (WUE) is, in my mind, one of the most important measures of a farm business. When you go to a BBQ, or tennis, or the pub, I believe that you should be talking about WUE, not yield. It measures how good you are at turning rain into grain. It measures how good a farmer you are, and / or how good your farm is. This can be confronting, and the purpose of this discussion is to help you discover where your WUE sits and then lead to discussion about how it could be improved.
