When: Day 3 – Friday, 15 June 2018, 9.00 – 9.30

Abstract: Covering approximately 500,000 ha of northern Victoria, the Shepparton Irrigation Region supports highly productive agricultural and horticultural industries. With rising watertables and increased salinity threats in the second half of the twentieth century, climate variability and dynamic land use change within this area mean that salinity risk is unpredictable. This session will explore a project designed to analyse how salinity threat changes in response to extreme wet and extreme dry conditions, and will look at the resulting landholder tool for managing salinity risk at a farm-scale.
