Scorecard highlights sector ploughing ahead

​The Tasmanian Agri-Food ScoreCard 2021-22​ reflects the outstanding achievement of the state’s sector and ability to capitalise on our climate, soils, natural resources, biosecurity and irrigation.

The latest edition demonstrates that 2021–22 was another year of growth for Tasmanian agriculture, with the gross value of agricultural production growing by 2 per cent to $2.34 billion compared to $2.3 billion in 2020-21.

Pasture-based industries accounted for around two-thirds of farm gate value due to favourable seasonal conditions and access to irrigation, with high livestock prices and milk prices underpinning growth in farm gate value. 

Dairy was again the highest value agricultural category increasing by 3 per cent to $506 million.

​The overall agri-food value, encompassing both agriculture and seafood, witnessed a strong 5 per cent growth to $3.65 billion. Seafood's value increased by 13 per cent to $1.34 billion, with salmonids leading at $1.17 billion.

New scorecard dashboard​​

An innovation for this year’s release is the creation of a new inter-active Tasmania Agri-food Scorecard Dashboard​.

The Dashboard provides the latest information on Tasmania’s agricultural sector in a dynamic and interactive way. The data will be updated regularly as it comes into the Department which will provide industry and Government with more timely insights on the performance of Tasmania’s agricultural sector.
