Welcome to the Tasmanian Government's Investing in Irrigation web-portal. A range of tools and information is available to help farmers and potential investors to develop their irrigation businesses.
New mapping technology is helping to classify land according to its suitability for various agricultural enterprises. This is complemented by gross margin and financial analysis tools, the latest market information, market research and irrigation fact sheets.
The information provided aims to help reduce the potential production, financial and environmental risks from irrigation development. The ultimate aim is to support the growth of high-value crops and enterprises that are well-suited to a particular irrigation district.
Information contained in this web-portal was initially
developed by the Tasmanian Government's Wealth from Water Pilot Program
(2010-2012): a partnership between the Department of Primary Industries,
Parks, Water and Environment, Department of Economic Development,
Tourism and the Arts, and the Tasmanian Institute of Agriculture.
