While we are seeing isolated instances of flooding in some parts of Queensland, from an industry perspective the rainfall is largely welcomed and sets us up for a strong year in food production.
However, producers and industry are keeping a close eye on events and are prioritising human and animal safety in preparation for more widespread flooding.
AgForce is also working closely with the State Government on disaster management plans.
We encourage producers and communities to stay close to their local disaster coordination centres.
If they are able to, they should complete the online survey from the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries, to ensure local information on flooded areas is up-to-date.
