Australian farmers are frontline environmentalists, owning, managing and caring for 48% of the Australian landmass.
94% of Australian farmers actively undertake natural resource management.
Agriculture has more than halved its Green House Gas emissions in the past 20 years. A massive 63% reduction between 1996 and 2016.
Since 2011, areas managed for conservation have continued to expand to about 18% of Australia’s land area.
Australia’s agricultural land management continues to increase, with ongoing reductions in the intensity of agricultural chemical use, more careful use of fertilisers and more flexible approaches to grazing management to reduce erosion and increase productivity.
