Where would Australians be without their cropping sector? The cereal aisle at the supermarket would be empty, not to mention some clothing stores, confectionery shops, pubs and bakeries.
Our cropping sector competes in the sophisticated global grain market, not only in price but also by being capable of producing varied crops. Different crops have different uses, for example - wheat for biscuit, noodle & bread production; cotton for clothing; sugar for confectionery or soft drinks; barley for beer.
The sector has advanced technologically, increasing crop yields and developing more land for cropping, even in the drier parts of Australia. Australians have a superb record in breeding, multiplying, testing, growing and transporting the harvest of crops.
