Australian agriculture has had an extremely dynamic and lively history. Technologies related to agriculture were first introduced by European settlers. This in turn had a major impact on early Australian agricultural practices. In the early 19th century, this sector was heavily dependent on wool production. Later, in the 20th century, this domain was dominated by dairy. Even though this nation has one of the most extreme climate conditions in the world, Australian agriculture has adapted its practices to become one of the most successful in the current times. Now, the nation proudly and successfully deals with grain crops, sheep and wool, beef and dairy, working bullocks and horses, sugar, cotton, fruit and vegetables, and grapes and wine. It truly is dynamic in every sense.
Moreover, Australian agriculture is now a crucial source and exporter of meat, sugar, dairy, cereals, fruit and produce. Nevertheless, wheat is the country’s main crop, with production occurring in every state. Some of the other important crops include rice, tobacco, tropical fruits, corn, oilseeds, sorghum and other items. The greatest aspect of this domain is that the Australian government is involved in every aspect of rural production.
