Purpose of the survey

The Value of Agricultural Commodities Produced Survey (VACP) is an annual survey, collecting information on prices paid to growers in Australia for agricultural commodities. Your participation is essential for understanding Australia’s agricultural commodities activity at regional, state and national levels. The statistics from this survey provide vital information which enables industry, business and government to make informed decisions which may assist your community or business going forward. By completing this survey, you help to ensure the results truly reflect the current state of the agricultural sector of the Australian economy.

Thank you for your participation. We acknowledge and value your time and effort participating in this survey. It is only with the support of people like you that we can continue to produce the statistics that inform important decisions affecting Australia's agriculture industry.
