IrrigationTasmania has relatively abundant fresh water by Australian standards. However, insufficient summer rainfall often inhibits plant growth in agricultural areas. There is growing use of irrigation on dairy pastures and in cropping areas to ensure optimum and reliable plant growth.
It is important to improve irrigation management in order to increase production, reduce the cost of production, reduce pests and diseases, optimise the use of a scarce resource and reduce impacts on the environment.
