Ag on a High in the Bundaberg Region
Bundaberg’s regional economy and local producers are currently reaping the benefits of a great growing season, buoyant prices and terrific yields.
The three most visible crops in our region these days are cane, Macadamia and avocado. This harvest season, all three are providing great returns for growers. Not only are we seeing high production levels, but demand is also going through the roof for these products keeping prices well supported.
Bundaberg Regional Council Economic Development Officer Scott Coleman said, “as one of our strongest industry sectors, the positive effects of such good prices and harvests in agriculture have spin off influences right through our local economy.”
