The state Government has put together a working group to discuss the conditions farmers are experiencing in parts of South Australia. 

The working group features representatives from Primary Producers SA, Grain Producers SA, Livestock SA and Rural Business Support, together with officials from PIRSA, Department of Human Services, Department of Environment and Water and the Bureau of Meteorology.

Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Development Tim Whetstone said the government is committed to supporting our regions so it is important they work with industry to assist farmers impacted by drought-like conditions affecting areas of the state. 

Information on the working party and on the services and assistance available for struggling farmers can be found online via the PIRSA website.
