Abstract: Consultation with growers about their key areas of interest identified the need for highly localised information about managing nutrition and how the plant reacts under different temperature situations to assist with better management of limited water. The next question was being able to access this local information in a quick and cost effective way. This project was developed from this background work. By utilising some existing local data, a method was sought to combine this existing work with new trial work to deliver for growers relevant and local data that meets their needs. Following the trial of delivering this information in a booklet format, it was decided that annual data records should be maintained ensuring the delivery of relevant and local data to growers each year, including based on our local trials undertaken. The trial of the canopy temp sensors will help growers to get a good look at the new technology and also build the database of benchmarking information for the CSIRO .
