How Much Water Gets Used On Farming Properties?

No Comments

If you will be investing in a property that you intend to run a farm from, then you’ll need to identify adequate water sources, esepecially in rural Australian areas which can become quite dry. Such planning required performing a water audit for your farm, calculating your water requirements and working out appropriate water sources that you can utilise.

Four areas of water usage on farming properties include:

  1. Household water use
  2. Gardens, lawns and shrubbery
  3. Irrigation for crops
  4. Stock water use

Many state government sites provide great advice for primary industries such as agriculture. We highly recommend checking out what resource your state government website provide. There is also a nice article on National Poly Industries’ website that summarises much information quite well: Calculating Your Farm Water Usage Requirements.
