Included in this issue are data on the type and area of crops irrigated, volume of water applied, and the sources of water used in agriculture. Data are available for each State, Statistical Division, Natural Resource Management regions and the Murray Darling Basin. Some previous estimates are included for 2002-03, 2003-04 and 2004-05. Data Cubes will be released for this product at a later date.
