GVIAP AS A PERCENTAGE OF GVAP

  • In 2010-11, the Gross Value of Irrigated Agricultural Production (GVIAP) constituted 28% of the total Gross Value of Agricultural Production (GVAP) for Australia. Proportionately, the three highest commodities in Australia were rice (with 100% of GVAP being irrigated), grapes (with 92% of GVAP being irrigated), and fruit (with 84% of fruit value being irrigated).
  • In the Murray Darling Basin (MDB) region, the GVIAP totalled 31% of GVAP. Similarly to the Australian totals, the three commodities with the highest percentages of GVAP were rice (100%), grapes (94%), and fruit and vegetables (90%) respectively.
  • In the states and territories, rice was the commodity with the highest proportion of irrigated GVAP, with New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland and Western Australia irrigating 100% of the rice crop. Grapes was the highest in South Australia (93%), Australian Capital Territory (100%) and Northern Territory (100%), while in Tasmania fruit was the commodity with the highest proportion of irrigated GVAP, at 90%.
