Land use in arid Australia


, : Land use in arid Australia. Advances in Desert and Arid Land Technology and Development 1: 151-181

Three-quarters of Australia is arid, of which about half is unpopulated desert. The other half is mainly used for grazing cattle for beef and sheep for wool. The grazing industry is export oriented, capital intensive, and uses very little labour.
