2019 Federal election


The NFF has now released its Election Commitment Tracker – comparing the major parties’ positions against our Agriculture: Growing Australia platform. Click below to take a look!

Australian agriculture is poised for growth, with a bold vision to achieve $100 billion in farm gate output by 2030.

Our industry’s agenda is ambitious, and we can’t do it alone. We need whoever forms the next government on board as a proactive and engaged partner.

The National Farmers’ Federation (NFF) has put forward a plan with practical ideas to sustainably grow Australia, by growing Australian agriculture.

You can download a full copy of that plan here, or explore our Priority Asks below.

I hope you’ll work with us over the coming weeks to ensure your local candidates share our commitment to a strong and sustainable farm sector.

Register your details on this page, and we’ll be in touch with tips on how you can amplify the voice of farmers and rural communities during the campaign.

Together, we can make sure the next Federal Government keeps our farmers growing Australia.
