30 by 30 vision – Growing our food and fibre future
Can NSW agriculture reach 30 by 30?
Take our survey to have your say
NSW Farmers has partnered with the Future Food Systems Cooperative Research Centre and the University of New England to produce a survey that will help find ways to grow agriculture’s contribution to the NSW economy to $30 billion by 2030.
We know agriculture is already a major part of the state’s economy; now NSW Farmers is working with a range of stakeholders, from farmers to industry bodies and government, to grow that contribution even further.
We want to hear from farmers on what is helping or hindering the pursuit of the "30 by 30" goal. What are the risks and opportunities ahead? Let us know through the survey
What is "30 by 30"?
2030 is a milestone year for the agriculture sector. NSW has the aspiration of reaching $30 billion in output by this date, while the national sector has the target of $100 billion. A favourable turn in seasonal conditions means record-breaking production levels are forecast for the year ahead, which bodes well for decade-end targets. But, significant planning is required now to make sure agriculture harnesses its potential and overcomes any barriers to growth. Agriculture is an untapped economic engine, and a state and national recovery from the fiscal blow of COVID-19 will be substantially aided by investing in the growth of this vital sector.
NSW Farmers has identified eight key areas where there is potential to expand the sector’s productivity and unlock growth opportunities for agriculture and regional NSW.
