Farmers welcome the new Ag VISA

A farmers lobby group is welcoming news an agriculture specific visa will be brought in by the federal government.

The Victorian Farmers Federation says producers have been promised a visa for too long.

While labour shortages have been highlighted in the last 18-months the group says broader issues with labour supply and quality have been ongoing for years.
