Riverland Crops

The Hon. N.J. CENTOFANTI (Leader of the Opposition) (14:19): Supplementary: is the minister aware of the issue of increased salinity to crops around Napper's Outlet?

The Hon. C.M. SCRIVEN (Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Development, Minister for Forest Industries) (14:20): Issues of salinity are always a concern when we have flooding events such as we have had. There are a number of different impacts, all of which need to be taken into account. Sometimes they need to be taken into account in conjunction with other issues at the same time. It is an issue which of course we will continue to work with local primary producers on.
