Planting Seeds: Growing the economy
Growing almost $13 billion in gross value of production and employing over 34,0000, Australian grain farmers are integral to the fabric of regional communities and are a mainstay within the Australian economy. GrainGrowers has identified six key priorities for the next Federal Government to help advance the Australian grains industry. Based on member and industry input, including over 600 survey responses, and endorsement from the GrainGrowers’ National Policy Group, these election priorities will benefit the national economy, consumer and community whilst sustaining growth of the industry.
