Professor Pratley said the stipend (or taxable income) provided to postgraduate students was uncompetitive, particularly as their Higher Education Contribution Scheme (HECS) debt of $30,000 accumulated at four per cent a year with no increments and everybody else in the community is paid superannuation... For Professor Pratley, the way forward was to develop a workforce strategy - the scope of which needed to embrace farm workers to research and development personnel, from 457 visas to research careers, from education and training to accreditation - to bring the agricultural workforce into the modern era...
