Information on irrigation practices on Australian farms was first collected in the Water Survey Agriculture 2002-03 and since then has been part of the annual Agricultural Survey or Census. 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. Comparative estimates are included for some aggregates for 2002-03, 2003-04 and 2004-05. Data cubes will be released for this product at a later date.

Water data from the Agricultural Census 2005-06 available for release in this issue of Water Use on Australian Farms are preliminary. Final water data will be released in this catalogue number in December 2007.
