​​​​Irrigation and Water RD&E programs

Tasmanian farmers and the state's agriculture industry have set the priorities for future irrigation research, development and extension (RD&E). By connecting into these programs, you can build your knowledge to assist in your preparedness to manage dry conditions. 

The Tasmanian Institute of Agriculture Irrigation Centre has more information about the peer to peer learning networks, irrigation and cropping decision modelling tools, soil characterisation, improved crop suitability and soil and drainage mapping.​

Water Requirement Spreadsheet

The Water Requirement Spreadsheet was developed by Macquarie Franklin for the TFGA.  This resource is held on the TFGA Project Resources web page under Water Requirement Spreadsheet/Farm Water Audit August 2011​.  There are five tabs within the page: Crop Water Use; Domestic & Processing Use; Existing Storage & Allocation; Bores and other Sources and a Summary table.
