Watch this interesting video on Australian agriculture, it might get you thinking.Read More
Livestock has been the main component of the Australian agriculture industry. It is indeed true that agriculture economy in Australia flourishes primarily due to the mainstay in the form of livestock such as beef cattle, pigs, dairy cattle, bees, horses, goats, poultry, sheep and other minor species. The livestock industries in Australia have certainly had a great phase of early development in which meat products were locally marketed mainly due to the reason that meat was one of those items that was easily perishable. Sheep and cattle industries were the first to develop primarily in the areas characterized by rainfall. The other livestock industries soon followed when greater part of the island was discovered.Read More
The majority of countries in the world accept products exported by all Federally-authorized establishments. However, some countries only accept pre-certified products derived from plants. If an individual wishes to export a product an application for export certificate or FSIS form 9060-6 must be filled out. Additionally, an FSIS inspector will perform export re-inspection. Once re-inspection is completed the FSIS form 9060-6 will be signed by either the FSIS inspector who performed re-inspection or a FSIS Public Health Veterinarian, depending on what is required by the country importing the item. The serial number from a FSIS form 9060-6 is stamped on the exported item’s shipping box and a copy of the FSIS form 9060-6 is given to both the exporter and the importing country.

Agriculture is one of Australia’s main industries, and understandably so. As a large country with a number of different terrain types, Australia benefits from being able to produce a variety of different crops that thrive naturally in its many regions.
The very north of Australia is considered tropical, where as the majority of the midsection of the country is considered grassland and dessert, and the south and east are more subtropical and temperate. The northern, tropical region is prime for growing tropical fruits like pineapples, mangoes and bananas, where as the east of the county is known for its production and exportation of lamb and beef, and the south is well known for its plentiful wheat, barley, cotton and oat crops. The wine industry is also becoming an important piece of agriculture in Australia, with vineyards located in nearly every region of the country.
Overall, agriculture makes up 3.8% of the Australian GDP, which may seem small, but it has a significant influence over several other important Australian industries, including food processing, chemicals and transportation.
How Biotechnology Improves Agriculture Goods Pollution affects every living thing on the planet. Attempts to seriously reduce pollution continue at a faster pace with the advent of a growing concern for global warming. Recycling, remediation of water, soil and air become federally mandated in order to stem further pollution problems. Many industries are now required to replace outdated pollution controls with state-of-the-art equipment that returns pollution to ambient status. Some of this is done through the use of biological systems that breakdown pollutants to safer levels. This translates to cleaner air, soil and water, all most necessary to the agricultural industries continued success.Read More
