LOXTON, SA, AUSTRALIA - MARCH 07: Viticulturist and irrigator Bill Wilson stands by his chardonnay grapes which are watered with drip irrigation March 7, 2008 in Loxton, South Australia, Australia. These grapes are growing on Bill Wilson's farm which is part of the Loxton Irrigation Trust, a group of 225 growers in South Australia who established one of the worlds only high pressure, closed system irrigation schemes in the world in 2002. The new system saved about 25% from the open channel and over flow system the group had before 2002. The Murray-Darling Basin has been plagued with severe drought since the late 1990s and many growers and policy makers are being forced to find and implement more efficient irrigation systems.
