A Victorian potato farmer has been granted bail in a South Australian court on charges of importing more than two kilograms of pseudoephedrine.
Jason Tranter, 38, is alleged to have been involved in illegal drug dealing at a house at Naracoorte this month.
The Magistrates Court at Mount Gambier was told electronic monitoring of Tranter's home detention would not work over the distance involved.
Magistrate Bill Morris set bail at $20,000.
Tranter and an alleged accomplice, 48, from Naracoorte are charged with drug importation.
There is a maximum sentence of life imprisonment.
