Irrigation Incentives

The Mallee CMA in association with its project partner, Agriculture Victoria, conduct rounds of irrigation incentives to promote the adoption of irrigation best management practices.


Irrigation incentives are available to Mallee irrigators who are on pre-1993 developments or on land that has been licensed and irrigated for at least 10 years. Incentives are not available for growers wishing to develop irrigation on new areas

The 2019/2020 round of irrigation incentives has now CLOSED.

When irrigation incentives are on offer they are widely promoted and advertised through this website and the local media. It is suggested that growers interested in irrigation incentive regularly check this website for updates.

Incentive types and rates may vary with each round but traditionally we have provided the following financial incentives:

  • Up to 50% of the costs associated with the development of Irrigation, Drainage Management Plans (soil surveys)

  • Up to 90% of the costs associated with the completion of irrigation system checks whereby pressurised systems are performance rated to identify inherit faults

  • Up to 25% of the costs associated with the upgrading of irrigation systems

  • Up to 50% of the costs associated with the purchase and installation of scheduling equipment

Please note that pre-requisites and conditions apply.
