SA livestock and poultry producers will be able to claim a $10 payment for foxes destroyed on their property as part of a $220,000 state government program.
The fox bounty has been introduced in an effort to limit livestock losses and encourage producers to step up their control programs.
The initiative will operate in a similar fashion to Vic's long-running scheme, which has paid $10 per fox scalp since its introduction in 2011.
The program will be limited to claims from livestock and poultry producers to ensure the funding goes to directly benefit farmers and prevent claims being made for foxes killed interstate.
The fox bounty will be available for two years, or until the funding runs out.
