A water tax doesn’t address the problems

Rural Exchange 27/08/2017

Over $300,000 to establish centre pivot irrigation and over $30,000 a year to running the irrigation on a typical 30ha property, says Nicky Hyslop of Irrigation NZ, and that’s all to use water more efficiently over the land only when we need it to explain farmers already pay huge money for the reticulation of their irrigation water on farm.

Richard ‘Loey’ Loe say’s monies collected is not monies earned back by price-taking not price-setting food producers, so is it

Nicky is concerned about Jacinda Ardern’s, Labour Leader, advice on this policy, and Irrigation NZ believe this is too big of an issue to go out with a policy with little detail.
