Data confidence level:
This FACT indicates the broadacre yield in each state and territory, measured in tonnes per hectare. For this indicator, broadacre yield includes wheat, oats, barley, triticale, sorghum, rice, maize, other cereals, canola, other oilseeds, peanuts, other pulses, cotton lint, and sugar cane for crushing.
In Australia, broadacre is land suitable for farms practicing large-scale crop (agriculture) operations, yet different soils, climates and crops affect the amount yielded.
The state with the highest yield is New South Wales with 122.2445 tonnes per hectare. The state with the lowest yield is the Australian Capital Territory with 4.3 tonnes per hectare. Data for the Australian Capital Territory and Northern Territory is considered by the Australian Bureau of Statistics to be unreliable. It is advised to use with caution.
