Eligible farmers will be able to apply to purchase an allocation of 50 megalitres from the South Australian Government for $5,000. Water must be used to grow fodder or pasture in the water year it is allocated.

The program will be delivered in two instalments:

  • 40 gigalitres of water available this water year (2019-20)
  • 60 gigalitres available in the next water year (2020-21).


One application is permitted per water allocation account. Applications will be opening soon.
