This publication presents detailed information on agricultural land management practices used on Australian farms. Data was collected in the 2011-12 Land Management Practices Survey (LaMPS) conducted by the ABS.

The data provides important information on a variety of land management practices undertaken by Australian agricultural businesses, including pasture and crop cultivation management, livestock management, pasture and vegetation management, fertiliser use and soil management.

The data will be used in conjunction with other information to assist with developing and implementing policies and programs on agricultural land management practices and decision making in relation to the Australian Governments’ Carbon Farming Initiative (CFI). The survey results will provide valuable information for other government agencies, industry groups and the wider community to use in understanding land management practices in different parts of Australia.

More information and reference material about how the 2011-12 Land Management Practices Survey may assist in decision making can be found at the following web page:

Data is published at the Australian and State level, and also at the Australian Agricultural Environment (AAE) geography level (scroll down for an AAE reference map). Additionally, industry information is available as a .csv download attached to this publication.

For a state-based overview of agricultural land management practices use data, go to Topics @ a Glance - Agriculture. In this publication, the Australian Capital Territory is included in the estimates for New South Wales.
