DENILIQUIN, NSW, AUSTRALIA - FEBRUARY 17: Irrigated rice paddocks February 17, 2008 outside Deniliquin, New South Wales, Australia. In a normal season, this area is a blanket of rice crops covering about 60% of the land. However, with almost zero water allocations this year, there are only four crops planted and the rice mills in the town have shut down leaving the area in economic hardship. Also in the image is the Mulwala Canal, one of the super highways for irrigation in the MD Basin. The Murray-Darling Basin has been plagued with severe drought since the late 1990s and many growers and policy makers are being forced to work on implementing more efficient irrigation systems.
