This paper summarizes the irrigation profile of the Murrumbidgee Catchment (New South Wales, Australia) which was developed from a study to obtain catchment and industry based assessments of water use efficiency and irrigation efficiency. The data gathered includes: the number of irrigators; the number of licences the entitled volume or area authorized for irrigation; the area irrigated and water used in total and by crop type; irrigation methods; yields of irrigated crops; and the value of irrigation to agriculture.
