Ag Mag | the agriculture newsletter

The ABS was funded to undertake an agricultural commodity and resource management survey for the 2007-08 reference period. This survey has collected details on agricultural production and stock numbers, and the adoption of specific agricultural management practices that have known links to improvements in natural resource condition. Information will support the 'Caring for our Country' initiatives.

A copy of the ARM survey questionnaire was included in the March edition of Ag Mag.

Preliminary estimates of the principal agricultural commodities, livestock numbers for the season, and intended ewe matings for the forthcoming season at National and State level will be released on 14 November 2008. In May 2009, final agricultural data along with the resource management data will be available at National and State levels as well as at the NRM regional level.
