RRRD054 Snapshot: Development of a banana modelling capability to enhance reporting of Reef Rescue outcomes


The aim of this project is to provide a modelling framework that is able to output the water quality and economic impacts of management practices in the banana industry. A conceptual model framework for a banana module in the APSIM modelling suite has been developed. Parameters associated with the banana plant will be 'plugged in' to develop the banana model. A literature review has identified data gaps  and the trial implemented by project RRRD049 is being monitored to fill some of these gaps. Another trial has been established at the same site to provide additional plants for destructive sampling. A greenhouse trial is being planned to help identify further gaps in nitrogen redistribution knowledge.
