To secure the future growth and profitability of Australia’s agricultural and food sectors, ATSE calls for the integrated pursuit of increased productivity and the enhancement of ecosystems through investment in technology, science and engineering innovation.
Australian agriculture and agrifood industries have a major opportunity to capitalise on the projected growth of Asia’s middle class over the next decades by exporting highquality, high-value food and fibre products.
To seize on these opportunities, Australia’s agriculture sector must increase its productivity and competitiveness while managing the competing demands on our limited natural resources (land, water, and nutrients), environmental sustainability, and climate change adaptation demands.
A whole-of-system approach with a focus on long-term
water sustainability targets is essential to improve the sustainability of Australia’s agricultural and
water ecosystems in the face of climate change and increasing competition for water

Australia should seek to use scientific and technological advances to target high-value and high-margin produce with a global reputation for food safety, not aim to be the most cost efficient producers of cheap food
Australia’s agriculture and food sectors relies, more than ever, on strong and stable support for science, research and development, translated to economic impact through various extension mechanisms.
From mining boom to dining boom - Food Industry Seminar, May 2014
Australian agriculture and agrifood industries have a major opportunity to capitalise on the projected growth of Asia’s middle class over the next decades by exporting high quality, high-value food and fibre products.
Australian agriculture is reliant on innovation driven-productivity improvements to increase production and remain competitive. Significantly bigger improvements to productivity than we have observed in recent years will be required
ATSE calls for the integrated pursuit of increased productivity and the enhancement of ecosystems to secure the future growth and profitability of Australia’s agricultural and food sectors.
Climate prediction is vitally dependent upon sustained and consistent observations of the atmosphere, ocean and land surface
Australian agriculture and land management has progressively been adapting to the Australian environment as our understanding of it increases. At the same time, it has also been adapting to the increasing pressures of the international marketplace
