Turf Production and Growth in Australia (2020)

Turf covers live grass products grown for parks, gardens, residential and commercial properties, sporting venues and for land rehabilitation and
landscape improvement purposes. Production occurs in all states and territories of Australia.

The majority of production occurs in New South Wales and Queensland. Production is year-round, with a number of different varieties being
grown, although there is a peak of production during the spring and summer months. When it comes to horticulture and the production and trade, it can be concluded that Australia is a nation that remains pretty active. Not only does it deal with fruits, vegetables and nuts, it also produces and supplies other horticultural products such as cut flowers, nurseries and turf.
