Data confidence level: Rating_circle_solid  Rating_circle_solid  Rating_circle_solid  Rating_circle_solid  Rating_circle_solid  


Given that the agricultural industry makes up 12 percent of the Australian GDP and is responsible for earning around A$155 billion a year, it is a hugely important industry. Farmland covers 51 percent of Australia's landmass, though this share is distributed unevenly across each state and territory.

This FACT indicates the percentage of each state and territory's overall spending that goes towards agriculture in 2011. The state with the highest percentage of spending on agricultural industry is Queensland at 34 percent. The state with the lowest percentage is Tasmania at 0.4 percent. Data for the Australian Capital Territory could not be obtained.
