Rural industries are major contributors to the economy of Tasmania

More than a quarter of Tasmania's land area is committed to agriculture. When 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.  See more Facts and Figures.

The Tasmanian Government has extended the moratorium on the commercial production of GM crops until November 2019.  Hormones and antibiotics are not used to promote growth in livestock.
