Farm Innovation Fund

The Farm Innovation Fund is a long term, low interest rate loan for NSW farmers for permanent on-farm infrastructure.

The Farm Innovation Fund is part of the NSW Government’s Drought Strategy and is a long term, low interest rate loan for NSW farmers for permanent on-farm infrastructure. The Farm Innovation Fund helps farmers to:

  • improve farm productivity – reduce risks and improve efficiencies by building fodder and grain storage facilities, sheds, fencing, roadworks and solar power conversions.
  • manage adverse seasonal conditions – improve water efficiencies with irrigation systems, cap and piping of bores, new dams, install water tanks and desilting of ground tanks.
  • ensure long term sustainability – increase the viability of a farm business and improve pasture and soil health, plant trees for shade and wildlife corridors, eradicate weeds, flood proof property and fence river banks.
