Rural industries form a major part of the economy of Tasmania 

Nearly a third of Tasmania's land area of 68,300 sq km is committed to agriculture.  Click on the Facts and Figures link to see the values of the diverse rural industries in the State.

When Tasmania's primary production is combined with dependent downstream processing, it provides around a third of Gross State Product, about a third of employment and a quarter of all overseas exports.  

Visit 'The A to Z of Tasmanian food' for more information 

Update January 2014 - Tasmania to maintain its GMO moratorium for food crops and animals.
