While relatively small compared to other grain growing regions in Australia, the grain industry in the Mildura region is well established and makes up for part of the agricultural tradition of the region.
The majority of the Mildura Region’s grain producing area now has access to a reticulated water supply pipe from the Murray River, providing high quality water to many growers across the district.
Salinity issues affecting the grain growing industry in the Mildura Region in recent times is reversing positively thanks to educated management techniques in the dry land faming industries and salinity recharge; excess rain water finding its way to the water table has been minimised.
