Irrigation Manager (Vineyard) Job Vacancy in Australia

  • Mildura area
This large-scale vineyard has established vines coming into full production and is seeking a person experienced in irrigation management to optimise water applications and maximise vineyard productivity.

This will involve the implementation and scheduling of the vineyard irrigation and fertigation programs accurately and on time. 
The Irrigation Manager will monitor and maintain the irrigation and fertigation system and infrastructure to ensure it operates to design specifications and will utilise irrigation management systems to monitor soil moisture within required limits.
Reporting to the Vineyard Manager, and working closely with the management team, the Irrigation Manager's role will be to manage the vineyard irrigation and fertigation systems to enable production uniformity across the vineyards and minimising the impacts of irrigation variations.
This will encompass preparing a costed plan to address any irrigation or fertigation issues and maintenance requirements to achieve maximum production objectives.
Skills and experience 
Although formal qualifications in agriculture or horticulture are desirable, experience in management of irrigation and fertigation operations associated with a large-scale horticulture operation is essential.
Previous experience and knowledge of computerised irrigation systems and radio transmission irrigation equipment and the ability to cycle irrigations using evapo-transpiration and crop factor records would be an advantage.
We seek a candidate with strong interpersonal, time management and organisation skills with a sense of initiative.
An attractive remuneration package will be negotiated based on skills and experience. Comfortable accommodation may be available to the successful applicant.
