Irrigation programming supports sustainable agriculture water management and adaptation to climate change by providing funding support for:
- Improved efficiencies in irrigation systems; and
- Development of new irrigation acres.
There are two streams:
Irrigation Environmental Efficiency Program: supports improved energy and water efficiencies for producers by converting low efficiency or high pressure irrigation systems to high efficiency, low pressure irrigation systems.
Irrigation Development Program: supports infrastructure development to create a secure water supply to the edge of irrigable land parcels and increase irrigation capacity by a minimum of 10 acres. The Ministry of Agriculture, Crops and Irrigation Branch can assist you with the steps involved in the irrigation development process.
