Making sure we’re helping farmers take advantage of new technology and remain internationally competitive, this Budget invests $65 million in a landmark new strategy for Victoria’s agricultural sector.
This comprehensive strategy will develop, fund and deliver better infrastructure across the supply chain, explore new technology and innovation and boost energy efficiency on our farms.
These initiatives will save time and reduce costs for producers, so they can focus on creating jobs and growing their business – as well as putting food on the table for families across the State.
This Budget also invests $50 million in the next generation of Victorian farmers, with agricultural college upgrades at Dookie, Longerenong and Geelong.
