SMALL scale conservation of water for agricultural use is becoming increasingly important throughout Australia.
As land development intensifies, it is natural that farmers turn to more dams and earthen tanks for stock water and irrigation.
Adequate water is essential to supply the carrying capacities made possible by improved pastures, and where greater quantities of water can be stored, fodder crops, pastures, orchards and vegetables can be irrigated.
