Welcome to the Virtual Irrigation Academy shop 

The Chameleon system is a way of showing the water, salt and nitrate status of the soil by colour patterns.  There are several aspects to the system in various stages of development as follows:

  1. Chameleon Field Reader & Soil Moisture Sensor Array (Currently only available to Research projects for beta testing)
  2. FullStop Wetting Front Detector
  3. Electrodes for Salt monitoring inside a FullStop (To be developed)
  4. A Web-based Visualisation     

Our work is currently focussed upon smallholder irrigators in Developing Countries, funded by the Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research (ACIAR).

Out of the Scientist's Garden

Out of the Scientist’s Garden is a pleasure to read — free of jargon and spare in its use of statistics — without in any way dumbing down very complex issues. It connects food and water in a manner that is all too rare. Andrew Campbell
