Power company AusNet Services has offered farmers guidelines for operating under proposed overhead transmission lines in Western Victoria.
The controversial 190 kilometre line is planned to run from near Stawell to Sydenham to connect renewable energy to the grid.
The executive director of the western Victorian transmission project, Stephanie McGregor said farming can continue under the lines.
"The focus of this information is specifically about farming practices and what is possible under power lines.We will be working with individual farm owners to assess individual practice." Ms McGregor said.
Key features are the heights that farmers can operate under the lines.A 500Kv tower will stand 72 metres with an easement of 70 metres.
Farmers can operate vehicles and equipment up to five metres in height under the lines but permission will be needed for heights ranging from five to eight point six metres.
Large water spray irrigators of the gun type are banned due to safety risks and potential damage to the infrastructure.
Aerial spraying and drones are banned under easements.
Crops and vegetation are permitted subject to height limits, livestock can graze under the lines.
For the project's 220Kv lines with 50 metre towers and 40 metre easements there are lower height limits for vehicles and equipment.
Ms McGregor said the guidelines offered farming certainty.
"In terms of the specifics of each individual landholder and their individual agriculture practices and what it means for them we've still got a journey to go through the EES (environmental effects statement)to work all that detail out and quantify it."
"For those who potentially have an impact on their operations then we're keen to work with them to see how that can be addressed either through operational changes, modifications and potentially through compensation (for equipment)"
Ms McGregor said it's hoped that a final route for the lines will be identified at the end of this year.
