Water Management Factsheet

The rice industry improved its water use efficiency by 60% in the 10 years to 2008.

With the implementation of the Murray–Darling Basin Plan in 2012, water has become more valuable and the need for continuous improvement in water use efficiency and water management has never been greater.

It is important for irrigators to assess current irrigation practices, to identify opportunities for improvement in irrigation efficiencies and water management to ensure a sustainable environment and profitable future.
