More resources for drought-stricken farmers

By Rodney Woods

Drought-hit farmers have better resources at their fingertips with important new features on FarmHub — the first national, single-site directory of farm support measures.

Federal Drought Minister David Littleproud said the site’s improvements came at a critical time.

“This puts even better drought support information at the fingertips of farmers,” Mr Littleproud said.

“FarmHub now contains tailored climate information for specific regions, developed by the Bureau of Meteorology, so farmers can manage climate risk.

“It also has a Learning and Development Directory with more than 100 programs farmers can use to upskill.

“This is a straightforward way for farmers to get the support they need.”

The Federal Government has invested $774 000 in the site over three years.
