Queensland is a huge decentralised state, heavily reliant on agriculture for its economic prosperity. Primary production is a cornerstone of our wealth and hugely important for exports and domestic consumption. Farming land needs to be carefully managed to ensure high productivity and economic use of resources. One Nation commits to consulting with the agricultural sector to implement policies that both protect the environment whilst allowing productive use of farmland.
One Nation will:
Allow the productive management of farming properties including the development of a policy governing the removal of regrowth vegetation.
Introduce a ‘good neighbour’ policy between farmers and managers of National Parks and Forest Reserves to ensure consultation and mutual approaches to common issues such as fencing, fire, pests and weed infestation.
Fund a wild dog eradication program in sheep country and pig controls in the North.
