The latest edition of the annual Australian Horticulture Statistics Handbook has been released. The 2022/2023 edition includes information on 75 different horticulture categories across fruit, vegetables, nuts, and greenlife.

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

The new data shows mixed fortunes for the Australian horticulture sector as it continues to face numerous challenges, including adverse weather events, higher production costs and labour shortages. The long-term outlook remains strong, however, with total production value of the horticulture sector growing by $434.3M (2.8%) over the past year to $16.3B.

Hard copythe original format of the handbook continues to be made available via downloadable PDF documents for the various categories.
