If agriculture thrives the entire state will
SUPPORTING rural families, protecting land and water, enhancing primary producers’ profitability and better connecting Queenslanders are among the key priorities in AgForce’s State Election policy platform.
The 40-page Thriving Farms, Thriving Queensland plan outlines a series of key priorities for broadacre primary producers in the upcoming Queensland election and the actions required to address them.
AgForce general president Grant Maudsley said Queensland was now the most valuable agricultural state in the country, underpinning tens of thousands of jobs in regional, rural and remote communities and thousands more in our cities.
“Demand for our high quality food and fibre is growing but for Queensland agriculture to achieve its full potential, we need governments to adopt the right policy settings so farmers can get on with the job of feeding our state, our country and consumers across the world,” he said.
“It’s quite simple – if agriculture thrives, Queensland thrives.”
