Promising seasonal conditions creates employment opportunities in regional Australia
While the world navigates the challenges of the coronavirus pandemic, the agriculture sector forges ahead. The world needs to eat and Australian farmers in various parts of the country looking at one of the most promising production seasons in years.

This is great for our farmer customers, local communities and “This creates significant job opportunities in rural and regional Australia,” Chris said.
