Businesses in control

AGRIBUSINESSES in the Bundaberg region are well placed to come to terms with carbon trading, according to the results of a new survey.

The 13th annual Westpac and Charles Sturt University (CSU) Agribusiness Index survey reported 100% of agribusinesses surveyed in the Wide Bay-Burnett region were aware a carbon trading system may be introduced in the future, up from 53% when the same question was asked in July 2007.

This compared to 96% for Queensland and 95% across Australia.

The survey reported input costs for agribusinesses in the Wide Bay-Burnett district, such as for raw materials, fuel, freight, feed, fertiliser, wages and utilities decreased over the quarter.
