    • The total Gross Value of Irrigated Agricultural Production (GVIAP) for Australia was $13.4 billion in 2012-13, a decrease of $116 million (or 1%) on the 2011-12 value. The total Gross Value of Agricultural Production (GVAP) (published as Value of Agricultural Commodities Produced, Australia (cat. no. 7503.0)) was $48 billion, an increase of 3% from 2011-12. In 2012-13 GVIAP constituted 28% of the total GVAP for Australia.

    • An illustration of the value of irrigated commodities in Australia and each state and territory is shown in the graph at the bottom of this page. The three commodities with the highest GVIAP in Australia accounted for 56% of total GVIAP. These commodities were:
        • fruit valued at $2.8 billion
        • vegetables valued at $2.7 billion
        • dairy products valued at $1.9 billion.

    • The commodities that were the main drivers of the year-on-year decrease in total GVIAP in 2012-13 were: cotton (decrease of $366 million), meat cattle (decrease of $198 million) and dairy (decrease of $147 million). These decreases were driven by falling world prices for cotton, and a combination of falling price and production for meat cattle and dairy.
