Australia has always been a world leader in agricultural innovation. Our farmers, supported by researchers, industry groups and other stakeholders, remain at the global forefront of the invention and adoption of technologies. This enthusiasm for change and innovation has helped Australian agriculture to retain its competitive edge over other producers. Technological advances will be even more important to the future of Australian agriculture. The sector is a part of the broader boom in innovation across the Australian economy. Meanwhile, new technologies will support farm businesses to tackle heightened regional competition, growing resource scarcity, and other challenges. The agriculture sector must be able to make the most of the innovation boom in order to support productivity growth and to maintain its competitiveness. At the core of the agricultural innovation boom are individual farm businesses that make decisions to adopt new technologies. If the Government wishes to support innovation and growth, it must support these businesses in technology adoption.
