A detailed efficiency survey of about 30 per cent of the irrigated horticultural area in the Peel-Harvey catchment revealed that only two out of 20 growers operated at the recommended efficiency levels. In addition it was found that the expenses associated with inefficiency were such that 12 out of 18 farmers would be able to recover improvement costs within one year of operation.
