Farm water management

Water is critical to the success of any farming enterprise, but is often difficult to manage.

Dry conditions limit plant growth, while too much water can lead to waterlogging. Having an efficient and effective water supply system is a key step in increasing farm productivity and managing business.

We offer a range of resources, tools, training and advice to help farmers better understand their water requirements and how to effectively use and store their water.
