Grower Distribution (State)

Information on grower distribution by location of growing operation.

The number of vegetable establishments increased in New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland, Western Australia, Tasmania and the Northern Territory in 2011-12.

The number of vegetable establishments decreased in South Australia and the Australian Capital Territory in 2011-12.

Vegetable growing businesses without an Australian Business Number and businesses with a value of operation below $5,000 remain out of scope in recording the number of vegetable businesses.

Vegetable businesses may own more than one farm and may own farms in different states. State location is determined by where the majority of income derives from. The number of vegetable growers in a given state is greater than the number of businesses as many vegetable growing businesses operate as family partnership concerns.
