Latest Horticulture Statistics Handbook now available

Date: 15th March 2023

The annual Australian Horticulture Statistics Handbook offers the most comprehensive and up-to-date data available on more than 75 horticultural products including fruit, nuts, vegetables, nursery, turf, and cut flowers.

Drawing on data from several supply chain sources, including international trade statistics and industry peak bodies, the Handbook includes information on retail and foodservice use, exports and imports, share of production by State and Territory, wholesale value, and volume.

Overall figures 2021/22

The horticulture sector overall exceeded $15.6 billion in production value in 2021/22, with mixed performance across the various commodity groups. The rising value was driven by significant value increases in the vegetable and nut categories – which increased 12.9 per cent and 16 per cent respectively.
