For over 180 years the people of South Australia have benefited from the food and fibre produced by our primary producers.  This section of the History of Agriculture website outlines the contribution made by our grains, horticultural and livestock industries to the wellbeing of the state.

Articles describe the extent and nature of our major industries, the challenges they have faced by way of natural influences as well as market drivers, the impact of research and development on the competitiveness of industries and the need for regulation in terms of yield and quality improvements, pest and disease control, market regulation, industry adjustment and assistance packages.
