FARM ONLINE | Growers call for government to enact Wheat Port Code reforms

Grain Producers Australia (GPA) wants to see action in terms of wheat export regulation rather than further empty reviews after the Federal Government admitted the recommendations from the previous review into the Wheat Port Code six years ago would not be implemented.

The government has called for submissions to a new review into the Wheat Port Code, currently scheduled to sunset on October 1 next year unless the government decides to continue the scheme, with GPA chairman Barry Large saying grain growers nationally had been let down by government inaction.

He called on political leaders to listen to grower concerns when deciding on reforms to the code, which is designed to protect fair and equitable port access for all grain exporters.
