We asked for your feedback on Round 1 of the Water for Fodder program.

The Water for Fodder program is an Australian Government measure to help ease the burden of drought on communities across Australia.

Under the program, farmers in the southern connected Murray–Darling Basin can apply to purchase water at a discounted rate. The water must be used to grow fodder such as pasture, hay, lucerne and silage.

We are delivering the program in 2 instalments:

  • 40 gigalitres available this water year (2019–20)
  • 60 gigalitres available next water year (2020–21).

Round 1 was open from 11 to 13 December 2019.

How you had your say

We sought feedback through an online survey from 26 March 2020 to April 9 2020.

We received 820 survey responses.

What happens next

Your feedback will be used to help us make improvements to the program before Round 2 opens.
