NGI Water Management Toolbox to assist

The nursery industry Water Management Toolbox aims to assist production nurseries in on-farm water management. This resource comprises of simple calculators for growers to manage nursery irrigation and drainage water to support sustainable and responsible use of water resources as well as the industry accreditation, certification and training programs. The calculators are derived from:

• The popular industry book titled ‘Managing Water in Plant Nurseries’

• The industry training program Waterwork

• Existing industry programs and Nursery and Garden Industry Queensland

Indeed, this tool consolidates ALL existing industry calculators that have been developed over the past 10 years into a central repository.

All calculators within the Water Management Toolbox are in Excel format and can be saved individually on the user’s computer. The entire Water Management Toolbox can also be downloaded as a zip file and accessed offline.
