Primary Producers SA (PPSA) wants the March State Election to be a time when the huge contribution to the SA economy of food, wine and fibre is acknowledged with action to help improve the competitiveness of the sector.
With one in five South Australians employed in the food industry, the state’s commodity advocacy and research groups are encouraging everyone to celebrate the industry on National Agriculture Day on Tuesday November 21.
All primary producers are encouraged to have their say on road transport issues constraining productivity and route access as part of the second stage of the 90-day Change@SA Transport Project.
Primary Producers SA has today released a survey for producers to provide more information on how they would move machinery wider than 4 metres if it were part of the new night movement permits system.
Primary producers wanting to move machinery less than 4 metres wide at night can now apply for a permit as a result of the government-industry transport partnership project.
