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.  More Facts and Figures here.


Note: - The Tasmanian Government has extended the current moratorium on the commercial production of GM crops until November 2019.
