GRDC Code: ICF1906-002RTX
Facilitated action learning groups to support profitable irrigated farming systems in the northern and southern regions.

GRDC are putting growers at the center of a suite of irrigation investments. Irrigation Discussion Groups are able to focus on local challenges and opportunities whilst they benchmark and test the key learnings from the linked irrigation investments. The eight discussion groups are located in the southern Murray Darling Basin, South-East South Australia, and the South Australian/Victorian Mallee. Their aim is for growers to be supported to push the boundaries of best practice in irrigated grain production through soil amelioration, agronomic practices and improved decision-making to maximise the dollar return of every megalitre applied.
