Farmers are being encouraged to take advantage of specialist business coaching and the tools they need to prepare for and manage drought and adapt to a changing climate.
The Albanese Government is working with the Tasmanian Government to jointly fund more than $4 million through the new Tasmanian Farm Business Resilience Program, under the Australian Future Drought Fund.
Brian Mitchell MP, Federal Member for Lyons urged local primary producers to register their interest.
“With hotter, drier conditions on the way on the back of El Niño conditions now confirmed for Australia, it’s more important than ever that farmers are equipped with the right tools to be more resilient to drought, and to bounce back quicker,” Mr Mitchell said.
“I encourage Tasmanian growers and producers to hop on the website and see what’s on offer.”
