-Gus here, recently returned to family’s mixed farm after working on other properties across Australia.

Water use for different irrigated crops

What is the water use for irrigated crops (by Ha and by Kg) in various regions along the Murray Darling? - I.e. how much water, per ha and per kg, is required to grow cotton vs rice vs almonds etc?

Hi Gus, a response from social media follower @farmingwife_farminglife

There’s a really good article called ‘How to be the worst dinner party guest - respond to the Murray Darling’ Mike Logan, August 2017. That gives those important figures & facts around why different commodities are grown where... eg Almond trees use 8Ml/Ha. Really worth reading????????
