The NSW Government has been asked to consider additional measures to help farmers cope with dry conditions in the future.
The government's Regional Assistance Advisory Committee finalised advice to the minister regarding changes to transport subsides and the special conservation scheme late last week.
Its executive director, John Newcombe, says the changes may not ever come into play but the minister is considering them.
"The minister will take into account advice from that committee and other places," he said.
"In addition, we shouldn't forget that these measures have some financial implications and the minister may well need to take them to Treasury."
