Member for Gippsland Darren Chester says funding to study further irrigation opportunities in the heart of Gippsland is a great win for local farmers.

“I met with Latrobe River irrigators this week and agree there is enormous potential for future growth in the agricultural sector if farmers can secure additional, reliable water supplies,” Mr Chester said.

“The farmers have worked hard to secure this funding with support from Gippsland South MP Danny O’Brien.

“Local farmers are well placed to provide input into the planned study and, if it’s feasible, I look forward to seeking Federal Government funding for infrastructure upgrades in the future.”
