Dale Boyd

Dale Boyd is an agronomist in the grains team with Agriculture Victoria based out of Echuca. He has worked with the department for 20 years and during that time has worked on a range of projects linked to monitoring soil moisture, irrigated cropping, and the current seasonal risk work with Dale Grey.
His current work is a state-wide targeted technology adoption project that uses deep soil moisture probe networks. He helps Victorian dryland grain farmers and advisors interpret seasonal risk information to aid decision making using one-metre soil moisture probes. The information taken from the soil moisture probes is presented in monthly newsletter updates which can then assist farm management decisions. A concept first thought up by Chris Sounness in 2011.
Dale supports industry in setting up its own soil moisture probe networks and is now extending this to pilot sites in the dairy and livestock industries across the medium to high rainfall zones of Victoria.
