Australian turf industry – Snapshot report 2016/17

This snapshot report highlights industry aggregate and production benchmark statistics for the Australian turf industry.

The project Turf Industry Research and Statistics 2016/17 (TU16001) is a strategic levy investment under the Hort Innovation Turf Fund. It was commissioned to address a fundamental gap in turf industry data and statistics. The Western Research Institute (WRI) was engaged by Hort Innovation to lead industry engagement and deliver data insights.

The results are based on a successful industry-wide engagement of over 100 turf growers. The data collected will assist the industry in data driven decision making, resource prioritisation, investment evaluation and strategic planning activities.

Further detail, including the final report can be downloaded at Hort Innovation’s Turf Fund grower page.
