With the election done, lobby groups are now lining up to make sure their issues are front and centre in the new government's mind.

Removing the carbon tax, more money for research and development and improving mobile phone coverage.

These are the issues the Victorian Farmers Federation president Peter Tuohey wants immediate action on now the election is over.

"They've promised a 10-per- cent increase in (research and development), which is very critical particularly for Australian food to compete on the global markets and our own supermarket shelves," Mr Tuohey said.

"I think they do really need to start looking with the ACCC, Coles and Woolworths' supermarket powers to make sure they sort those issues out."

Farmer Power has listed an overhaul of labelling laws and a code of conduct for supermarkets at the top of its post-election priorities.

Dairy farmer and Farmer Power member Greg Brooks is vowing to be a vocal force if the new government doesn't act.

"The government needs to understand they're there to represent the people and the best interests of the people and Australia in general," he said.

"If they are not doing the right thing, you have got to take it a step further."
