Banana producers in Innisfail impacted by recent storms can now apply for disaster recovery assistance.

Primary producers affected by a natural disaster can apply for an Individual Disaster Stricken Property (IDSP) declaration.

Disaster Assistance loans of up to $250,000 available at a concessional interest rate.

For more information or to apply for IDSP, visit the DAF website or call 13 25 23 for assistance.
