Government and Agencies

Government provides a number of opportunities and resources in Australian agriculture that often benefit from the touch of private industry and people with muddy boots. Meridian Agriculture uses its influence in local, state and federal government to constantly try to improve the conditions in rural and regional Australia.

We work closely at the local government level to provide agri-environmental advice regarding infrastructure, planning and development. We work with farming clients to negotiate better planning outcomes with local government.

Meridian Agriculture has a wide network of government employees who are able to influence policy pertaining to rural industry. We use those networks to talk sense, ground truth policy and improve investment value for farmers, industry and government.

We are a private consultancy with a strong sense of community and industry. We are driven to create positive change through research, sensible policy, education and extension.
