Agricultural Census photos and audio
Agricultural Census forms have been sent to every farmer in Australia and should reach them by the last week of June.
To assist media in covering the event the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) has placed a selection of pictures, feature stories, audio grabs and media releases on the AAP Media Net website.
These can all be downloaded as you require them.
Deputy Australian Statistician, Rob Edwards, said this week that the Agricultural Census would provide up-to-date information about farm production, land use and land management practices which would assist industry and government in planning, policy development and marketing strategies that benefit Australian rural communities.
"A good Agricultural Census is vital to understand what is happening on the land," he said.
If farmers haven't received a form by the end of the month they are asked to contact the ABS on 1800 647 011. Forms are due back to the ABS by mid-July.
