The grains industry's value in regional economies

Published: 4 May 2020

Agriculture is a significant industry in regional Australia. Grains makes up roughly a quarter of Australia’s agriculture value and is a key commodity for regional communities across all 6 of Australia’s states.

Independent and informed by both research and ongoing dialogue with the community, the Regional Australia Institute (RAI) develops policy and advocates for change to build a stronger economy and better quality of life in regional Australia – for the benefit of all Australians. The RAI was established with support from the Australian Government.

This research report translates and analyses findings of research to enable an informed public discussion of regional issues in Australia. It is intended to assist people to think about their perspectives, assumptions and understanding of regional issues.
