Monto Agricultural Strategy

Empowering Monto growers

The $481.6 million Building Better Regions Fund supports the Australian Government’s commitment to create jobs, drive economic growth and build stronger regional communities into the future.

The Community Investments Stream funded the following community activities: new or expanded local events, strategic regional plans, and leadership and capability strengthening activities. These projects will deliver economic and social benefits to regional and remote communities.

The Opportunity

BCCA will develop an agricultural strategy for the Monto district based on careful analysis of current agricultural practices in the area and an assessment of likely changes in agricultural markets. The strategy will include a plan for long-term success for local agriculturalists while providing a vision for agricultural and environmental sustainability. The strategy will consider economic, market, consumer and environmental trends to find fresh and innovative opportunities that suit growing conditions in the North Burnett and drive productivity growth along the supply chain to yield financial reward for growers, the local economy and the wider community.

We are currently conducting a survey which has been mailed to all landholders within the Monto district, circulated on the Burnett Catchment Care Association Facebook page and is also available here. This survey is to collect data from Monto residents in order to better understand the existing agricultural situation and to direct the Ag Strategy going forward.

Completing the survey is not compulsory however we hope to get as many responses as possible. The more responses we receive, the higher chance we have of producing a strategy that is relevant to our local landholders. In our experience, it is uncommon for funding to be awarded to such a specific agricultural region so we are looking forward to making the most of this opportunity.

All valid responses returned prior to 1 Feb 2019 will go in the draw to win a $500 gift voucher at a Monto rural supplies store (your choice of FarmStuff Monto, Kewpie Rural Monto or Monto Rural Traders).
