Associate Professor John Hornbuckle

Research Leader - Irrigation and Water Management, Deakin University

Associate Professor John Hornbuckle leads Deakin University’s Irrigation Research Group in Griffith, NSW in the heart of one of Australia’s largest irrigation areas. John has extensive experience in undertaking irrigation research across a range of industries and developing remote sensing tools which are used extensively by irrigators across Australia and overseas. The IrriSAT tool developed by John and his team has seen extensive use across the globle for improving irrigation water management. John’s recent research is focused on integrating a range of sensing platforms to deliver solutions to irrigators that improve productivity and minimise impacts associated with irrigation.

Abstract Outline: The use of remote sensing in irrigation management has been considered since the 1980’s. This presentation will outline efforts in this space to develop tools to deliver irrigation water management information to irrigators and water managers with a focus on the developments of the past decade in Australia and what the future may hold.
Additionally, the presentation will discuss the future trends and the merging linkages of remote sensing with other emerging domains such as IoT, AI and machine learning and the potential they are likely to offer the irrigation industry in the coming decade. Examples of commercial integration of remote sensing technologies in irrigation management will also be given and the advantages these services are providing to Irrigators.
