Agriculture white paper: Drought relief, dams key focus of Coalition's blueprint for rural Australia
More money for dams, extra drought relief and measures to boost the returns to farmers from sales at home and abroad are part of the Federal Government's long-awaited blueprint for agriculture.
Following a strong cold front which swept over southeastern parts of the nation yesterday, cool air settled under clear skies over parts of the sunshine state.
