Today gives all Queenslanders to celebrate and be proud of our state’s contribution towards feeding and clothing the world…and for those in cities to pause and remember that the Ag industry is a driving force for their way of life on a day to day basis.
Over 330,000 Queenslanders are employed across the whole food supply chain, meaning that about one in seven Queenslanders are either partially or entirely supported by the food sector. – That’s in fact, 1 in 7 jobs in Queensland.
No matter where you are in Queensland, agriculture provides employment opportunities and supports small businesses and large business.
Agriculture is Australia’s fastest growing industry and has an incredible story to tell, and that’s exactly what AgDay is all about.
Join the conversation on social media using the hashtag #AgDay, share pictures of the great farm produce you’re enjoying today, or even test your farming knowledge with the AgDay quiz.

Because, no matter where you are in Queensland, country or city-here’s food on your table and money in your pocket because of our Ag industry.
It really is that simple.
Agriculture is a foundation of the Queensland economy and a vital contributor to our society, underpinning tens of thousands of jobs in regional, rural and remote communities and thousands more in our cities…
And what’s more, the recent Agricultural Census revealed Queensland is now the most valuable agricultural state in the country, producing almost a quarter of Australia’s food and fibre.
