Australia’s large-scale crop waste prompts calls for reform

As many as a quarter of Australia’s farms are leaving perfectly good crops to rot on the ground, according to researchers.

That is because the farmers are unable find local or foreign workers to pick and pack their produce.

The problem has prompted calls for changes to Australia’s working holiday visa programme.
