Drought-hit farmers have better resources at their fingertips with important new features on FarmHub – the first national, single-site directory of farm support measures.

Minister for Drought, David Littleproud said the site’s improvements came at a critical time. “This puts even better drought support information at the fingertips of farmers,” Minister Littleproud said.

“FarmHub now contains tailored climate information for specific regions, developed by the Bureau of Meteorology so farmers can manage climate risk. It also has a Learning and Development Directory with more than 100 programs farmers can use to upskill.

“This is a straightforward way for farmers to get the support they need. FarmHub is a one-stop-shop helping thousands of people find immediate assistance.

“It has the latest information to help farmers make decisions about sustaining their businesses through the drought.”
