Region. Productive farmland

The large areas of farmland in Western Sydney include some of the most productive agricultural land in Australia, according to a WSROC submission to the National Food Plan Green Paper. The agricultural industry, which is comprised mainly of fresh fruit and vegetables, poultry, horticulture and turf farms, is worth around $1.5 billion a year. The region produces 12 per cent of NSW’s total agricultural production and employs 11 per cent of the state’s workforce. In addition, the Sydney region contributes over 15 percent of NSW’s total vegetable production.
