Agriculture in Victoria
Victoria's temperate climate, high quality soils and clean water support our world-class agriculture industries. In 2012-13, Victoria's agricultural industries used a total land area of 10.6 million hectares. About 6.1 million hectares is mainly for grazing, and 4.5 million hectares is mainly used for cropping. The gross value of agricultural commodities produced was $11.6 billion.
To grow and maintain Victoria's strong agriculture sector, the Department works with industry and on research, development and extension to improve production; connects the sector with international markets; supports industry development; and maintains effective biosecurity controls.
