Funding rounds

After nine funding rounds between 2012 and 2017, the infrastructure funding component of the STBIFM program has now been completed.

Since the Sustaining the Basin Irrigated Farm Modernisation (STBIFM) program began in 2012, we’ve helped recover more than 34,000 megalitres of water savings through investment in on farm irrigation system modernisation.

A total of 23,631 ML of water entitlement had been transferred back to the Commonwealth to bolster environmental flows in the Murray Darling Basin, while an additional 10,595 ML has been kept on farm to support agricultural production.
