All the analysis of the political ramifications of the wheat export issue has centred on finding a solution acceptable to the current government.
Debate has been between the feuding Libs and Nats - but Labor has deliberately stayed out of it - sensing it is a not a vote winner for them. Instead they have been content to watch the Coalition partners slug it out.
However, with the polls suggesting that Kevin Rudd's early popularity shows no sign of abating, with potentially damaging issues bouncing right off with no impact at the polls, the agriculture community has to seriously consider the fact it will be working with the ALP once a new government is formed.
And, as such, we need to know more about what Labor thinks about a range of issues, but wheat exports in particular.
The official line is that Labor supports a single desk, but that sheds about as much light as a pencil torch at the MCG.
Farmer lobby groups need to sit down with the ALP and go through the government's decision last week and find out where Labor stands.
With so much of the government's plan contingent on actions further down the line, a clear understanding of ALP policy is crucial.
