Agribuzz with David Leyonhjelm
Davd, this ia a masterful commentary. We need to accept that in the most part with our bulk broadacre products we are in the commodity business and are price takers. Whilst accepting the primacy of focusing on low unit production costs there are pricing opportunities which chiefly relate to the timing of price fixing. This necessitates the separation of pricing from delivery, mainly on a forward basis. The Australian cotton pricing methodology is a great model.

As there are no,or very limited, allocations applied when water is in short supply, would Professor Parton please explain his statement that "Clearly we've had an over-allocation of water"? Does he understand how the Entitlement and Allocation process actually works?
Good on you Jennifer! This is probably the most important issue in the whole Murray Darling Basin debate. During the drought it was nothing short of criminal that irrigators on the Murray went to the wall through lack of water, whilst water continued to be sent downstream to the Lower Lakes which under natural conditions would have been filled to sea level by salt water.
