Rice jobs dry­ing up

Kyabram Free Press - - NEWS -

AN­OTHER di­rect im­pact from the dry win­ter and the low and in some cases no ir­ri­ga­tion water al­lo­ca­tions has been felt by the Rive­rina’s rice in­dus­try.

SunRice an­nounced last week sig­nif­i­cant cuts to pro­duc­tion, which has im­pacted on the work­force and put the De­niliquin Rice Mill’s im­me­di­ate fu­ture in doubt.

Some 100 rice in­dus­try jobs are tipped to be lost in the Rive­rina area, the ma­jor­ity from the Deni mill.
