Tasmanian farmers and the state's agriculture industry have set the priorities for future irrigation RD&E.
TIA facilitated the development of these priorities through a series of industry forums and by establishing an advisory panel representing farmers, agribusinesses and policy advisors.
TIA is bringing together experts in irrigation and related fields from around Australia to work on these priorities.
Funded by the Tasmanian Government, the Water for Profit Program will help to ensure farmers are equipped with the right skills and information to increase profits and sustainability from their investment in water.
The Program is a state-wide initiative and will work with farmer groups in key regions that have new or existing access to irrigation.
