06 December 2016
Minister for Primary Industries, Niall Blair, has announced Agricultural Natural Disaster Relief for eligible primary producers within parts of south-west and western NSW, which were affected by a severe weather event last month.
Mr Blair said heavy hail and strong wind gusts in excess of 100 km/h hit producers hard on 11 November 2016.
“The storm caused more than $34 million of damage to irrigated horticulture, aquaculture, dryland agriculture and rangeland grazing enterprises,” Mr Blair said.
