►Extension of time: Farm water funding.  CLICK HERE for info on extension of deadline for Farm Water Funding, Irrigation Scheduling.
 
Extension of deadline: Farm Water Funding. Please note that there has been an extension of the deadline for the funding administered within the Goulburn Murray region.  Funds are available for irrigation scheduling activities that assist growers to use soil moisture monitoring techniques that generate water savings while improving productivity.
These works must save at least 20 megalitres of water, with a minimum of 50% of this water saving being transferred to the Australian Government as an unencumbered permanent water entitlement. Funding for irrigation scheduling is available for all irrigation industries (dairy, mixed farming and horticulture) in the Goulburn-Murray Water Service Area (includes the Goulburn Murray Irrigation District and regulated rivers, subject to trading rules). Proposals must meet best practice management standards to be eligible. 
Service providers may have irrigator customers who qualify. Irrigators should talk to their local Department of Primary Industries Project Officer about their eligibility and individual requirements to guide decisions about the type of equipment they intend to purchase. Irrigators have until 5pm Thursday to submit an ‘Expression of Intent.’
NOTICE: Intention to Incorporate. Please note that a special Incorporation General Meeting will be held on June 16 at 11am. It will be held at the Numurkah Football Ground. Hope to see you there. 
On the agenda will be items including:

⇒Soil Moisture Monitoring Report:the latest report from the Soil Moisture Monitoring project team is now available for your information. The report covers the work done by the project over recent months. The following quotes from farmers make interesting reading:
 
"Initially l thought irrigating based on the data would mean more frequent irrigations and the crop was going to require more water than budgeted. By knowing where the refill point was l could plan ahead and determine irrigation times. Predicted rainfall could delay irrigation dates if the plant was still extracting moisture. Summer rainfall has been used to its full benefit allowing less water to be applied this season and avoiding waterlogged periods".
 "It has opened up my eyes to what is happening in the soil profile. By being able to use all the moisture in the root-zone, l have been able to lengthen my irrigation schedule". Click for PDF of March Report of Soil Moisture Monitoring Project

► Productivity Commission Final Report Released: ‘Market Mechanisms for Recovering Water in the Murray Darling Basin’.  
The final report by the Productivity Commission has now been publicly released. It was released to Government on March 18, and now is available more generally today (March 31.) The report made recommendations  on how the Government's buyback of water entitlements in the Murray Darling Basin could be improved. The buyback and the irrigation infrastructure program are being used to recover water in a transition to lower water diversion levels expected under a Basin Plan.
It documents concerns about aspects of the design and sequencing of the strategy. It also noted problems in having commenced the buyback before the Basin Plan is ratified. Some of the recommendations relevant to the Cluster  cover issues including: setting diversion limits while balancing trade-offs; approval processes being applied rigorously to irrigation infrastructure projects; clarifying sharing of risks associated with reduction of water availability to enable more informed decision making by irrigators;  environmental watering being addressed through purchasing a portfolio of water products, not just entitlements; and removal of restrictions on water trading.      CLICK FOR Productivity Commission 2010 Final Report Market Mechanisms Water

RDV to confirm funding for next phase of the Cluster: 

Verbal confirmation was given today (Dec 15) for the next RDV funded stage of the Water Technology Cluster. Patricia Chick was able to let us know that the Minister's office confirmed that the project proposal Bruce and Cluster members have been developing during this year will get funding. This will allow a significant research project to take place to help understand the Service Gap between irrigation farmers and service providers. This will allow better design of responses for delivering appropriate services, products, technologies and programs as modernisation rolls out across the region.

It was pointed out that it is rare for a Cluster to be given further funding past the 'seeding' stage, but given the importance of the new project, that it received support from government. STAY TUNED!
