Agricultural production is a very important contributor to Australia's economy, and is a key industry in many rural and regional areas, as well as some outer metropolitan areas.

The data presented here are sourced from the five yearly Agricultural Census, run by the Australian Bureau of Statistics. The data show the gross value of agricultural commodities in broad categories, measured across two Agricultural Census periods.

The type of agricultural production in an area depends on geographic, climatic, environmental and economic factors. Certain locations specialise in different rural industries. For instance, rural areas close to cities often have large production of intensive horticulture, while orchards may be prevalent in irrigated areas near major rivers, and cereal crops in dry-land farming areas. Production can also vary over time due to environmental factors like droughts, cost of production and price of commodities.

These data can help to plan for changes in the agriculture sector, and impacts on local communities, as well as showcasing the agricultural production of an area.

Please note, that the ABS does not publish figures for some agricultural commodities in some areas, to protect the confidentiality of individual farming businesses. Where the table shows a "--" that figure has not been published, and is unavailable. Unpublished figures are included in totals and subtotals.

Agriculture value data should be viewed in conjunction with the Industry Sector Analysis page for the Agriculture sector, which has modelled estimates of the size of the industry on an annual basis. The Employment Locations page will show where agricultural activity is taking place and the Workforce Profiles section will reveal the characteristics of agricultural workers.
