CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE
Due to the reduction in agricultural commodity content collected in the 2007-08 Agricultural Resource Management Survey, compared to previous Agricultural Surveys and the Agricultural Census, actual gross values for some commodities are not available. However, these have been estimated and included in aggregates.
Refer to the Explanatory Notes for further detail.
