Turf industry statistics 2020-21 to 2024-25 (TU21000)

Key research provider: Turf Australia

What’s it all about?

This investment is tasked with providing accurate and reliable data for the turf industry. This information – including value, volume and other benchmarking statistics – is intended to allow turf growers and the broader industry to make timely and effective decisions in planning and resource prioritisation, as well as track market trends and industry performance.

Data is collected through annual production surveys coordinated by the Turf Australia team and state-based turf bodies.

This investment follows on from the project Turf industry statistics 2017/18 to 2019/20 (TU17005).

The first year of data collection is completed, representing data from the 2020-21 period.

Overall results for 2020/21 showed that reduced production and value were recorded for 2020-21 when compared to the previous year (2019-20). A reduction of 2.6 per cent for production and 3.8 per cent for sales were recorded.

The project team noted that the challenges of significant floods in early 2021 and COVID lockdown through this period likely have some impact on the recorded figures.

An annual industry snapshot report is underway, and a bench-marking platform was also developed to allow growers to access their data over the period of the project. The bench-marking tool and the snapshot will be available on the Turf Australia statistics page when ready.
