Farm Table says:
Farm Diversity is an AgriFutures Australia initiative that allows you to search crop and animal production alternatives by type or location to discover what is best suited to your farm.
Farm diversification is an increasingly common practice all over the world. With increasing financial, environmental and market pressure, farm diversification offers farmers the opportunity to spread income risk and build resilience.
Searching with the tool will uncover information about particular crop or animal diversification in areas such as:
- production requirements
- infrastructure requirements
- harvesting, processing and selling
- markets and marketing
- risks and regulations
- industry bodies
