The TFGA today welcomed the State Governments commitment to improving on-farm productivity. “ The announcement today by the Government will be embraced by all Tasmanian farmers and we commend the Minister on this very important initiative” said Peter Skillern, CEO of the TFGA.
“It is imperative for the future prosperity and sustainability of agriculture within Tasmania that we research and adopt new management methods and technologies. We look forward to working closely with Government to ensure that this new framework achieves the required productivity gains that will be needed as we move into the next scale of agricultural production” said Mr Skillern.
The TFGA has been very proactive in this area for some time and we are pleased to see today’s announcement which is a positive outcome of our advocacy.
