An irrigation block, strategically located mid way between Melbourne and Adelaide, and just 12 kilometres south of the Western Highway at Kanva.

A highly productive property, Kaniva comprises 262 hectares (648 acres), 182ha (450ac) of irrigated country under four center pivots.

The property was established approximately 15 years ago when it was fully laser levelled and drainage put in to gain 100 percent productivity out of all the irrigated country.

Sustainability has been a very big part of the current owners program with excellent three year rotation of barley, mustard for natural fumigation, field peas for nitrogen then the main crop following, thus allowing for minimal chemical use.

Also in the rotation, 10 tonne per hectare of cow manure is added to enhance the very healthy loam soil types.

Kaniva has two 12 inch bores with two reconditioned Cummins motors feeding four pivots all connected by the main.

All equipment is in very good order with excellent pressure throughout the system.

The property has a 300 megalitre water licence and a very reliable 450mm approximate average rainfall.

With this years crop being harvested on two pivots and the other two in mid rotation, Kaniva is ready to step in and plant the crops of your choice immediately.

Kaniva is suitable for a stand alone operation or add on property for diversity and to enhance your current operation.
