Spraying assistance

(1985) Spraying assistance. Elders Weekly, 16 May 1985. p. 5 [Publication] [Special Collections]


The State Government has announced further assistance for the aerial spraying of crops in the Ord River will be provided over the next two years. Agriculture Minister, Dave Evans said $25,000 would be made available in 1985/86 to assist in providing a spraying service to farmers in the Ord River area. The government subsidy was required because there was insufficient spraying activity to permit the profitable operation of a commercial air spraying company unless the price paid by farmers was increased dramatically.
