Broadacre field crops

Broadacre field crops sustain the economic, social and cultural fabric of many Queenslanders. The broadacre field crop industry is estimated to be worth about $675 million (excluding sugarcane). The industry employs thousands of people on the land, in food processing, and in other areas along the value chain.
