Irrigation farming has changed significantly in the past 25 years. Policy and climatic changes have seen the amount of water available to irrigators reduced which has driven greater water use efficiency at both farm and regional levels.
Research recently completed by CSIRO Ecosystem Sciences aimed to identify likely changes to irrigation practices, the potential implications for native biodiversity in irrigation landscapes, and strategies
to help reduce any negative impacts for biodiversity.
