Consultation on draft updated management plans - now closed

Industry consultation on the annual updates of the management plans for the Grain Industry Fund and Grain Industry Research and Development Fund has now closed.

The feedback we received from industry - including grain grower fund contributors and other grain industry participants -  is being used to inform final updates to the plans. Finalised plans will go to the Minister for consideration.

The updated management plans will be presented at a public meeting advertised and facilitated by PIRSA. Once released the revised management plans will be made available on this page.

About the Grain Industry Fund Management Plan

Grain growers, industry associations and other grain industry interests have indicated their preferences for the funding scheme through public meetings, an online questionnaire and other means of consultation.

The initial five-year management plan has been drafted based on the consensus of views provided through the consultation process. The process was conducted by a consultant appointed for the purpose, Mr Neil Howells.

The Primary Industry Funding Scheme Act 1998 requires the five-year Management Plan to be annually reviewed.

The Management Plan was released at a public meeting on 3 May 2018.
