Irrigation Farm Business Plan
The Irrigated Cropping Council is working with The North Central Catchment Management Authority and Murray Dairy to the implement the new Plan2Farm project. This new program helps farmers consider their exposure to water markets and the efficiency of their irrigation system, and the influence this may have on their future farming business.
The Farm Business Plan is a key tool of the Plan2Farm program. The plan provides the opportunity for farmers to assess where their business is situated now and where you want it to be in the future. The plan will help those involved in the business make more informed decisions about your farming business to improve your business resilience.
Help you think and talk about the future of your farming business others involved in the business.
