Australia's Agricultural Industries 2017 map provides a snapshot of agriculture's status and trend. It shows where Australia's broad agricultural land uses are located and statistics on their area and land tenure. The map reports on the top 5 livestock, crop and horticulture commodities based on gross value of production. Trends in agricultural production, employment and exports are also given including for Australia's top 5 export commodities and destinations.
The map presents information in a simple and easy to understand manner and provides a useful resource for planning and regional development.
This map replaces the 2016 map with updated agricultural and employment data.
The map presents published data of current status and historical trends from ABARES and the Australian Bureau of Statistics on a single page. A change in scope of the agricultural census 2015-16 data has impacted on commodity data, particularly with some horticultural commodities.
This map complements ABARES Australia's Forestry Industry 2017 map.
