Agribuzz with David Leyonhjelm

David, as is your custom, another well-considered and articulated article. One key aspect not mentioned is transparency. The root of the levy problem is legislation that enables entities higher in the supply chain to deduct levy costs from grower returns. Hence the majority of growers do not understand either the quantum of the levy, nor the impact on their net returns. Many growers support an industry-wide contribution towards future sector profitability. However analysis of the grains sector shows failure to achieve this goal. Also, 20% of growers pay 80% of sector levy costs.

Unhappy or ignorant cocky?
There are better ways to fund research, and more cost-effectively, than to a govt monopoly. This archaic structure is killing entire communities. The double dip of Levies and End Point Royalties now exceeds $5.50/t, LEPR by name, LEPR by nature. Amending an arrangement does not mean "no research".
