Opportunities for Desalination in Australian Agriculture::

This project will provide a national assessment of the feasibility of utilising desalination technologies to address the issue of water scarcity to enhance water supplies to agriculture and associated industries with the aim of increasing Australian agricultural productivity. The project will focus on the outcome of available and relevant laboratory research and pilot projects to demonstrate technical and economic viability of supplying water for selected high value agricultural activities. The outcomes of the project will be to identify the areas of agricultural production with the most potential for desalination and provide guidance for policy formulation and implementation to the NCEDA, government, and agricultural and water industry stakeholders.
