FARM ONLINE | Australia pushes for closer trade ties with UAE


Australian farmers will look to develop trade into the Middle East as part of a proposed free trade deal with the United Arab Emirates.


Grain Producers Australia northern director Matthew Madden recently visited the UAE and said food security was a critical concern for the desert nation.


He said he had visited the nation's only wheat farm, developed as part of UAE government policy to improve its long-term food security.


"They have recently started looking at producing wheat of their own, which is very impressive, given the growing season heat, I was there in the dead of winter and it was still 27 degrees," he said.
