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.  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.
