Water for Fodder- Round 1 Program Review & Outcome

Australian Govt Dept Ag Water and Env logo

The Review of Round 1 of the Water for Fodder Program is now complete. This was a requirement in the agreement between the Australian and South Australian Governments. The Review incorporated targeted stakeholder feedback, independent analysis and over 800 surveys and written submissions. The review found that a majority of survey respondents supported the Water for Fodder Program, and 84 per cent of applicants said they would apply for the program again.

However, the review also found that South Australia does not have sufficient water security for Round 2 of the program to occur immediately. It will not be until after winter and spring inflows that water availability for the 2020-21 water year will begin to emerge. We therefore expect further details about Round 2 to be announced later this year.
