Dead Citrus Orchard, 2007

Julie MILLOWICK, born 1948.

 

During the drought, many irrigators’ water allocations are reduced, sometimes to zero—yet they are still required to pay the full amount to maintain their water right. This has a devastating financial impact on citrus farmers who have to decide which parts of their orchards they will let die.

 

Mildura, Victoria.
