Drought-hit livestock farmers in SA can now claim up to 25% on new water infrastructure.

It is part of a $5 million emergency water infrastructure rebate scheme, introduced by the State and Federal Governments.

Minister for Agriculture and Water Resources David Littleproud said the rebate will help SA farmers in drought buy and install new water infrastructure to improve drought resilience.

“Water efficiency is always important and during the drought it’s vital,” Minister Littleproud said.

“Farmers can claim up to a quarter of the costs to have new on-farm infrastructure put in.

“The rebate will help improve farm resilience and protect livestock.”

“Some farmers have been facing drought for years and we’re standing shoulder to shoulder with them so they can get through it and prepare for future droughts.”
