The Value of Irrigation

There are considerable flow-on economic benefits to the community from irrigation.

We have commissioned the New Zealand Institute of Economic of Research and Nick Taylor and Associates to identify and assess the benefits of irrigation in the Amuri Basin. Their research showed clear social and economic benefits to the towns of Culverden, Rotherham and Waiau as a result of the introduction of irrigation.
