Australian agricultural productivity is compared against two key competitors on global agricultural markets—Canada and the United States. The comparisons draw on new comparable agricultural productivity data developed as part of an international initiative.
The analysis evaluates how Australian agriculture has performed over the past five decades and considers implications for maintaining competitiveness on global food markets and for contributing to global food security. The study develops an internationally consistent data series for agricultural productivity in Australia to enable cross-country comparisons.
