The Federal Government has announced Round 3 of its On Farm Irrigation Efficiency Program. This provides irrigation licence holders an opportunity to transfer water entitlements to the Federal Government and receive funding to invest in farm works that will improve water use efficiency.

 Ricegrowers’ Association of Australia (RGA), together with other industry and irrigation organisations will prepare a bid to implement the program within the NSW Murray Valley and also for the Murrumbidgee Valley.
