May’s Ozwater’18 conference included a discussion on the Plan2Farm project featuring participating farmer Di Bowles and government representative Toni Radcliffe.
A podcast of the discussion is now live: listen to podcast.
Plan2Farm provides personalised and specialised support to farmers in the Goulburn-Murray Irrigation District (GMID) to understand their business needs and make decisions that align with their vision for their farming future.
Whole-of-enterprise planning means farmers make better decisions around on farm water use, long term water requirements, modernisation agreements with the Connections Project, and land use practices.
This approach provides environmental, social and economic benefits within GMID irrigation communities, helping irrigators to adapt to rapid change and reduced water availability.
The Victorian Government has invested $2.4 million into the program which is coordinated by North Central CMA and delivered in alliance with Goulburn Broken CMA, North East CMA, Agriculture Victoria, GMW Connections, Rural Development Victoria and Murray Dairy.
