New agricultural data released
Results have been released from two major ABS agricultural surveys that were conducted in 2011-12.
The Agricultural Resource Management Survey (ARMS) collected agricultural commodity information and land management practices on Australian farms. Five publications are produced from the survey, with four having already been released and another to follow in October 2013.

The Land Management Practices Survey (LaMPS) collected information about crop and livestock management practices, fertiliser and soil management, feral animal and animal waste management and other land management practices.

Data from the two surveys are now available on the Agricultural Resource and Land Management page.

Agriculture surveys 2012-13
There will be two agricultural surveys undertaken in 2013:

The Rural Environment and Agricultural Commodities Survey (REACS)
This survey will collect data on broadacre crops, livestock, horticultural products, hay and silage, crop and pasture management, water use and farm management.
It will be despatched on 5 July 2013.

The Agricultural Land and Water Ownership Survey (ALWOS)
This survey was first undertaken in 2011 and will be collected again in August/September 2013.
It was introduced to address the lack of information available on foreign ownership of agricultural businesses, including land and water entitlements for agricultural land.
Results from the previous survey can be viewed in the ABS publication, Agricultural Land and Water Ownership (cat. no. 7127.0).

Using Google Earth technology, estimates of Gross Value of Irrigated Agricultural Commodity Production have come to life in an animated 'fly-over'. Pillars represent the total gross value of the irrigated production - the blue portion representing the gross value of irrigated production and the white non-irrigated production. Brown pillars depict the gross value of production in areas of dry land agricultural production.
