SoilWaterNow: Soil water nowcasting for the grains industry

This project will deliver a scientific framework to nowcast plant available water (PAW) at any point in time, within and across paddocks and at multiple depths in the soil profile so that growers can have access to innovative products for monitoring, managing and forecasting PAW on-farm.

The project will test, develop and refine data-driven, data assimilation, hybrid soil water balance model and ensemble-based approaches (ie different analytical frameworks) to predicting PAW.
