Water for fodder program set to open next week

Farmers in the southern connected Murray–Darling Basin will soon be able to apply to purchase water at a discounted rate through the Australian Government’s Water for Fodder program.

The department has published guidelines to allow farmers to familiarise themselves with the process before the program opens for applications in the second week of December.

A total of 40 billion litres will be available for purchase this water year (2019 –20) and another 60 billion litres in the next water year (2020–21).

Individual farmers can apply to purchase 50 megalitre allocations for $5,000, or up to 2 allocations of 50 megalitres each if they hold more than 1 water allocation account.

Acting head of Water division, Mary Colreavy, encourages farmers to read the program guidelines this week so they are ready to apply when the program opens.
