In our opinion, an increase in the trigger point would help all farmers and increase the effectiveness of the program, but we can appreciate that it's a significant funding decision. We would recommend that producers and government discuss and agree on the trigger point together, but to be cautious. If the RML, the reference margin limit, is not removed, the desired impact will not be fully achieved. There will still be inequities between various agricultural sectors.
