The 2021 Ag City Prize nominee has extended the now-extended city until Monday, August 16.
This year’s Agricultural City Award highlights the important role that agriculture plays in the region of South Australia.
David Basham, Minister of Primary Industries and Regional Development, said the Kovid lock soon means candidates will be open for another week.
“The 2021 Ag city candidates will remain open until Monday, so if you do not jump online and name your city, you have more weeks to do so,” he said.
“It’s a quick and easy process, so go to www.agtown.com.au and name your city.
“Agriculture is an integral part of our region and the AG’s City of the Year Awards highlight communities that support industries, including cereals, vegetables, meat and livestock, dairy, wine and wine, forestry, and fish and aquaculture.
“The winner of 2020 was Malina, the city of Maine, with 119 candidates for 70 different cities in eight regions.
We have many proud regional communities in South Australia and I look forward to seeing this year’s candidates.
Our regions are important – they contribute about $ 29 billion annually to the South Australian economy in a variety of industries, including agriculture, fishing, mining, manufacturing and tourism.
“That’s why our government is investing in record-breaking South Australia in key infrastructure, economic growth and job creation.
This year’s award nominees will close at www.agtown.com.au, Monday, August 16, 2021.
Then, in 2021, the finalists in South Australia’s agricultural city will go to the polls to elect five finalists.
The winner will be announced in November 2021 at the 2021 Regional Exhibition.
