The sustainability of Australian agricultural production systems: a realistic objective or simply a desirable aim?


, : The sustainability of Australian agricultural production systems: a realistic objective or simply a desirable aim?. Australian Geographer 26(2): 173-179

Whilst the term sustainability has undergone considerable transformation from its original intended meaning, in the context of agriculture it is considered to have relevance to four aspects of the activity: the maintenance of production; financial returns; employment opportunities; and the stability of the ecosystem. An appraisal of market trends suggests that the key issue of substantially improved financial returns for Australian agriculturalists is at present unlikely for some enterprises.
