Frost-affected Wangaratta farmers angry

leave a comment »

The rural area of Wangaratta has asked the Victorian and federal agricultural ministers to visit the frost-affected King Valley region.

The crops of grape growers have been badly affected by the recent extreme weather conditions.

Graeme Nickless from the council wants to attract the Victorian Agricultural Minister Bob Cameron’s support even if the growers do not qualify for exceptional circumstances assistance.

“The invitation was extended to him immediately following the frost,” he said.

“There has been some ongoing dialogue with his departmental advisers and he is aware of the situation.”

“We just need to expose him to those conditions first hand.”
