North East Victoria is the largest growing region for chestnuts in Australia. This new video highlights the industry’s involvement in the Sustainable Irrigation Program, delivered by North East CMA and Agriculture Victoria, aimed at looking at the application of irrigation methods in the orchard and maximising the opportunity for water to be utilised and maintain healthy production in a drying climate. Gross domestic production of the crop is estimated at $15 million to $20 million annually. Funding for this project has been made available by the Victorian Government through the Sustainable Irrigation Program.
