Model scenarios for sustainable expansion of irrigated agriculture and horticulture in Northern Adelaide Corridor
Long-term modelling scenarios under historical (1970-2017) and future climate (2018-2050) using UNSATCHEM module in HYDRUS-1D to assess the longevity of irrigation, using a range of available water resources, in four main soil groups.

Sustainable Expansion of Recycled Water-Irrigated Agriculture/Horticulture in North Adelaide Plains
The Northern Adelaide Corridor has significant potential for economic development from the expansion of irrigated agriculture. This would build on the success of established horticulture activities on the Northern Adelaide Plains (NAP) around Virginia.
This Goyder Institute for Water Research project, ‘Sustainable Expansion of Irrigated Agricultur... moree and Horticulture in Northern Adelaide Corridor’ was established to address the following key knowledge gaps related to expansion of irrigated agriculture:
1. Current soil attributes which are needed to assist model predictions of the impacts of using recycled water and develop guidelines for the sustainable use of recycled water
2. The impact of water from different sources / of different quality on water-soil biochemical process interactions
3. The fate of nutrients from different sources on receiving waters and effects from variable irrigation water quality on the long-term sustainability of the land’s ability to grow crops
4. The amount of water of different quality that is able to be supplied at different times of the year
5. The depth to shallow (often saline) groundwater which would be affected by increased recharge from expanded irrigation
6. The extent of resilient and also vulnerable areas where further irrigation expansion could proceed subject to additional works and management practices being assured (such as interception and removal of shallow, saline groundwater).
