The three commodities with the highest proportion of irrigated GVAP were rice (with 100% of GVAP being irrigated), grapes (with 93% of GVAP being irrigated), and cotton (with 92% of GVAP being irrigated).
  • In the Murray Darling Basin (MDB) region, the GVIAP totalled 36% of GVAP. As with the Australian figures, the three commodities with the highest percentages of GVAP were rice (100%), grapes (96%), and cotton (92%).
  • In all states growing rice, this commodity had the highest proportion of irrigated GVAP, with New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland and Western Australia irrigating 100% of the rice crop. Western Australia also reported irrigating 100% of their cotton crop. Grapes was the commodity with the highest proportion of irrigated GVAP in both South Australia (96%) and Tasmania (94%).
