Irrigation has played a pivotal role in Australia’s agricultural sector for over a century contributes significantly to Australia’s national agricultural output. Although less than 1% of Australia’s agricultural land is dedicated to irrigation, approximately $9 billion, or 25% of Australia’s gross value of agricultural production is attributed to irrigation annually.
Australia’s heavy reliance on irrigation has been evident over the past decade, with drought and resulting low water allocations severely impacting national agricultural production and income. In response to continuing poor conditions in Australia’s major irrigation districts, an increasing emphasis has been placed upon farmers to increase their water use efficiency through investment in irrigation infrastructure, and by doing so, ensuring the long term sustainability of their businesses.
