Turf industry statistics 2017/18 to 2019/20 (TU17005)
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.
A 2017/18 snapshot report has been released based on data collected for the Australian turf industry on production, market channel sales, varieties and sentiment. The results from the survey built on data that was collected as part of the one-off investment Crisis management awareness program (TU16003). This new project will run for three years and will continue the time series. The key insight from comparing the data between 2017/18 and 2016/17 was that while volume is slightly down, farm gate production has increased.
This project is a strategic levy investment in the Hort Innovation Turf Fund
