Irrigation farming; Irrigation projects
Coleambally, a new irrigation unit, to the south of the Murrumbidgee Irrigation Area in Australia, has come into operation since 1960. It is the first land to receive water from the large Snowy Mountain power and water storage development in southeastern New South Wales. This district of some 139,000 acres now produces rice, wheat, hay, vegetables, fat lambs and wool. When all Snowy Mountain structures are completed and reservoirs filled, the irrigation area will be more than tripled in size.
