Australia's top ten trade commodities – Carrots

Australian carrot exports

Australian carrots, known for their freshness, safety, and quality assurance, are consistently supplied to local, interstate, and international markets, thanks to year-round production. Victoria and Western Australia are the leading carrot producers, collectively accounting for more than half of Australia's carrot output. Following closely are Tasmania, Queensland, and South Australia, contributing significantly to the nation's carrot production.

Carrots are often cultivated in rotation with other vegetable crops such as potatoes, lettuce, cauliflowers, broccoli, and onions. They thrive in various soil types, though sandy soils are preferred due to their positive impact on root quality and ease of harvesting.
