Résumé
This thesis argues that there is a well-defined regional pattern of integration between irrigated and non-irrigated (dryland) farming in the southern Murray Basin of particular significance to programmes for combating production uncertainty. This pattern is exp a1ned in terms of the physical and cultural forces producing spatial differences in types of irrigated products and two basic situations are distinguished. Firstly, "on-farm" int egrati on where irrigated and nonirrigated lands are used by the same farmer ; secondly, "off-farm" integration where exchanges of factors of production (stock, stock Ieed t and stock agistment) occur between irrigation and dryland farmers.
