Rebates to help farmers improve water efficiency in drought

South Australian farmers affected by drought can apply for a Federal government rebate to help with new water infrastructure to improve efficiency and resilience.

State Minister for Primary Industries Tim Whetstone said the Federal and State governments were working together to ensure long-term viability against drought.

“The On-Farm Emergency Water Infrastructure Rebate Scheme will provide a 25 per cent rebate up to $25,000 for eligible water infrastructure designed to enhance drought resilience for farmers in South Australia,” Mr Whetstone said.

As part of the $50 million On-Farm Emergency Water Infrastructure scheme, farmers can apply for rebates on purchasing and installing of pipes, pumps, generators and more.
