The first Innovation in Irrigation showcase was launched at the annual conference of the Australian National Committee on Irrigation and Drainage in October 2004. The showcase includes a booklet and video, which features 12 case studies of excellence in irrigation from across Australia. It highlights the water efficient practices used by innovative Australian irrigators.
Following the success of the 2004 showcase, the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry launched the 2005 Innovation in Irrigation showcase in October 2005. The new showcase features 6 more irrigators in an informative booklet and video. The irrigators depicted in both the 2004 and 2005 showcases are demonstrating how creative strategies can ensure high productivity for every megalitre of water used.
Both the 2004 and the 2005 showcases have been developed with the support of the Australian Government’s $3 billion Natural Heritage Trust. For more information about the Innovation in Irrigation showcases download the 2004 and 2005 Innovation in Irrigation brochures below:
