Rice growers positive
And they have good reason to be proud of the product they grow and the way they grow it, according to speakers at the peak body's annual talk fest. About 200 growers and industry representatives were in Griffith last week for the Ricegrowers Association of Australia annual conference. Speakers included former National Farmers Federation president David Crombie and SunRice board member Peter Margin. RGA executive director Ruth Wade said the conference was overwhelmingly positive and it was important for growers to hear the good news together. "We need to take pride in our role as growers, and that has been hard when you are facing droughts and low allocations," she said. But Ms Wade said rain forecast for this week, particularly in the Murray Valley, would augur well for a big rice crop this year. And rain across rice growing areas meant farmers who may have been forced to use some of their irrigation water finishing winter crops could reserve this for rice. Ms Wade said growers were told the Australian rice industry had much to be proud of. "What we do, we do extremely well without subsidies," she said. "We are producing safe, high quality food and the speakers challenged us to champion the industry. "They wanted us to give out the message that we are dynamic, progressive people and we can do this." Ms Wade said a large contingent of younger growers attended the conference. "It was great for a younger generation to hear about the opportunities and to share in the positivity," she said.
