The farming industry generates employment opportunities as well as revenues for the Government. The support from the Government to ensure the sustainability of the industry is required.

Farmers support the local economy but when the overseas prices fall then so does farmers income and the amount they can spend in the local economy. If farmers knew their product was always going to fetch a reasonable price with bonuses for good years then it would be easier for them to decide what they were going to grow or farm instead of chasing fads which then crashes the market like velvet and wool and milk.
