Will Roberts.WOOLPOLL panel chairman Will Roberts, Queensland, is calling on all woolgrowers to vote on the wool levy to send a clear message on the importance of rural research and development.
Mr Roberts said many growers were yet to participate and were leaving the industry’s future to others to decide.
“Over the past few years there has been a lot of discussion within the Australian Government about whether it will continue to support the funding of rural research and development,” he said.
“If you want to make sure our rural R&D funding is maintained, then you need to make yourself heard.
“This is your income, your business and your future.”
The panel’s role is to oversee the vote, ensure it meets regulatory requirements and maximise grower turnout. It includes representatives of organisations from across industry as well as the Australian Government and AWI.
