If constructed, the proposed Rookwood Weir will enable agricultural development along the Fitzroy River - in land that extends 5km from each side of the river. This extensive area contains more than 45,000 hectares of suitable land for irrigated crops.
The information in the following resources:
- can help you locate and explore details about suitable land that has potential to grow various irrigated crops
- includes the elevation and slope of land, and soil suitability and limitations for a range of different crop types.
Irrigated crop suitability mapping tool and report
An online tool that shows the location and details for land that is suitable for growing different irrigated crop types if Rookwood Weir is constructed.
Irrigated crop suitability maps in PDF format
Maps that show the location and number of hectares of land that is suitable for growing individual irrigated crop types.
Market data on various crops
Information on export markets, volumes and prices per tonne for crops that could potentially be grown if Rookwood Weir is constructed.
