Future opportunities for using forest and sawmill residues in Australia

Peter Lock & Linden Whittle
The Australian forest industry generates millions of tonnes of wood residues every year as a by-product of harvesting and sawmilling operations. The efficient use of harvest and sawmill residues can reduce disposal costs and create additional revenue streams, contributing to the international competitiveness and sustainability of the Australian forest and wood processing industry. This report presents estimates of the potential production and use of harvest and sawmill residues in Australia in 2050. The modelling framework...

The future of public sector forecasting in Australian agriculture

Rohan Nelson
The operating context of Australian agriculture has changed dramatically since Australian governments first committed to providing forecasting services for agriculture in the 1940s.

Analysis of the future of Chinese agricultural policy

James Fell
In recent years China has announced big changes to its agricultural policies, changes which are likely to have an impact on Australian agricultural exporters.

Agricultural price and volume indicators: concepts, data sources and methods

Kirk Zammit, Christopher Boult, Shiji Zhao & Liangyue Cao
Australia's agricultural sector is highly export oriented. The value of these exports, and therefore their components, volume and price, are important indicators of farm performance. Rather than just communicating commodity specific developments, there is a policy need to understand developments across industries and sectors. This paper outlines the recent development of aggregate price and volume indicators for Australian agricultural exports. The development of these indicators is couched in an accounting framework to ensure consistency across...
