Review of Rice Vesting

The Department of Primary Industries invites stakeholders to provide a written submission into rice vesting in NSW.

Submissions must address the following issues:

A. Do the benefits of rice vesting outweigh the costs to the community as a whole?

B. Are any net benefits (or the majority of these benefits) derived as a result of rice vesting alone?

C. In the absence of rice vesting, would a viable rice export market continue to provide benefits for NSW rice growers?

Written submissions are due on 21 July 2021 to rice.review@dpi.nsw.gov.au.
