Flood takes toll on growersBy Rhianwen Whitney, Wednesday January 30, 2013 - 15:53 EDT
Horticulture body Growcom says many fruit and vegetable growers are once again faced with the tough task of rebuilding.
CEO Alex Livingstone says while the damage is not as bad as it was after the 2011 floods, crop losses are still extensive.
He says producers need help.
"We'd see that getting product out and keeping cash flow to producers is going to be really important," he said.
"We've got to remember that it's only been two years since the last major event.
"The Lockyer got hit very hard two years ago.
"A lot of these producers are still in a recovery phase after that - both financially and in their farm."
