Producers getting their money back

Flynn Producers with permanent plantings can now access the On-Farm Emergency Water Infrastructure Rebate.

Member for Flynn, Ken O’Dowd said the rebate will help save valuable trees and vines.

“Horticulture is a valuable industry for Flynn and this will help protect it during the drought,” Mr O’Dowd said.

“This will let eligible growers claim the rebate on installing new bores or desilting dams.

“This will both make better use of water and make water more available across valuable permanent plantings.”

Minister for Drought David Littleproud said the Federal Government had taken steps to make sure there was enough money to expand the scheme.

“Growers in drought affected areas can claim 25 per cent of expenses, up to $25,000 on eligible projects started after 30 June 2019.”
