Nationals pledge agricultural boost

The Nationals have announced a $277 million election commitment to support agricultural growth in regional WA. 

The policy would build on the Seizing the Opportunity in Agriculture initiative.

Nationals candidate for Roe Peter Rundle said the funding would ensure the agricultural sector remained an important contributor to the State’s economy.

The pledge would include $87 million to continue the Water for Food program, $63m to fund Local Government lime and commodity routes and $40m to establish WA animal research institute.
