Large parts of the irrigation areas of the Murray Darling Basin have shallow watertables that
threaten crop productivity and financial sustainability of irrigated agriculture due to soil
salinisation and waterlogging.
This work is focused in the Murrumbidgee catchment to help understand the value of the
seasonal forecasts to rice based cropping systems. The key activities of this project include:
• An overview of water allocation in ...
