Agriculture and food industries are Western Australia’s second biggest export industry and proximity to the leading markets in Asia provides excellent opportunities for WA to capitalise on the demand for safe, high quality food products and services.
The State’s agricultural producers are highly innovative, especially in dryland farming. These innovations are founded on a history of dedicated research across the sector.
