Joyce backs hunger strike farmer's petition to get permission to grow sugarbeet again

A farmer has won permission to grow sugarbeet again after successfully fighting the government's decision to freeze his licence.

The New South Wales Agriculture Minister 실시간카지노said the Agriculture Department has given permission for Sycamore Broughton and another sugarbeet farmer to resume growing sugarbeet — but not for the first time.

Farmers who were first granted permission in 2010 have now won a judicial review of that decision.

Farmers in NSW have been fighting to keep Sycamore's sugarbeet production.

Sycamore Broughton was granted a licence to grow sugar beets in 2010.

Mr Joyce said Sycamore's farmers could grow as much as 200,000 tonnes of sugarbeet this year, a five-fold increase in sugar beet yields.

"Farmers across NSW will benefit directly and indirectly because they'll have grown more sugarbeet, and that can go into supermarkets, and it can also help increase our exports," he said.

Farmers opposed to Sycamore's licence to grow sugar beets are among the first in the state to receive여수출장안마마사지 후기 approval for their appeal.

They believe the government should return Sycamore's licence to Sycamore Broughton "to allow a health
