Water Use on Australian Farms, 2002-03 (cat. no. 4618.0) was released on 31 March. This new publication contains information on irrigation practices on Australian farms, collected in the 2003 Water Survey - Agriculture. The survey was developed in response to strong demand for nationally consistent information of water use. Data were collected on the type and area of crops irrigated, volume of water applied, water entitlements and allocations, sources of irrigation water, irrigation methods, factors influencing changes to irrigation practices and irrigation expenses. Data are available for each state and statistical division. For further information contact Cherie Poulton on (03) 6222 5983, email c.poulton@abs.gov.au.
