About the SA Drought Hub
The SA Drought Hub is one of eight established across the nation through the Australian Government’s Future Drought Fund.
Led by the University of Adelaide in partnership with the Department of Primary Industries and Regions (PIRSA), the SA Drought Hub comprises the Hub headquarters at Roseworthy and five regional nodes at Minnipa on Eyre Peninsula, Port Augusta in the Far North, Orroroo in the Upper North, Loxton in the Riverland, and Struan in the South-East.
The location of the nodes ensures state-wide coverage of all pastoral, low, medium and high rainfall agricultural production zones.
The partners are injecting into the hub $11.47 million of cash and in-kind support – in addition to the $8 million of funding over four years from the Australian Government’s Future Drought Fund.
