The Australian and SA Governments are offering a rebate to drought affected farmers who invest in urgently-needed on-farm water infrastructure.
Eligible farmers can access a 25% rebate – up to $25,000 – on new purchases and installation costs for on-farm water infrastructure to help them in the current drought and be better prepared for future dry conditions.
The On-Farm Emergency Water Infrastructure Rebate scheme can be applied to:
- new purchases and installation of:
- water storages
- water pumps
- de-silting dams
- drilling of new stock water bores and associated infrastructure including:
- desalinisation plants
- power supply such as generators.
Farmers will be eligible to apply through PIRSA for the rebates, which will also cover eligible work undertaken since 1 July 2018.
