A VIEW FROM THE 'TOP PADDOCK'
Welcome to this edition of the 'Ag Mag'. The coming year will be a busy year for the program with the 2010 -11 Agricultural Census to be despatched in June. This edition provides a brief background to the Agricultural Census and how the data collected may be used.
This edition also marks the end of another productive year for the program, with a broad range of products released throughout the year. Recent releases include the preliminary results of the 2009 -10 Agricultural Resource Management Survey in Principal Agricultural Commodities, Australia, Preliminary (ABS cat. no. 7111.0). Final estimates from this survey will be released next year in Agricultural Commodities, Australia; Water Use on Australian Farms and Land Management and Farming in Australia. Details as to the release dates and catalogue numbers for website access to these publications are detailed in the ARMS Survey topic (item 4) of this magazine.
We hope you enjoy this edition of the 'Ag Mag'.
