Water Management Project:
Jack Buck Farms have been fortunate to receive a Water Resource Management Grant. The aim of this project is to increase the available water storage capacity at Jack Buck Farms by installing a new 27,000m3 reservoir and install a new distribution main and pump house to pump the water around a 204 acre land block, so that crops can be irrigated.
The project will deliver a number of objectives:
Enable the business to abstract, store and irrigate an additional 27,000m3 of water.
Enable an additional 204 acres of owned land to be irrigated.
Supply water and land to other vegetable and flower growers.
Increase the production, yield and quality of celeriac and fennel grown by Jack Buck Farms.
Improve irrigation efficiency through the investment in boom application.
Improve water security and drought resilience of the business.
Improve the productivity and financial performance of Jack Buck Farms.
