Agricultural women to the fore

In Queensland, more than half of all women working in agriculture are employed as farmers or farm managers, and they contribute 33 per cent of all on-farm income. Women also play a major role in contributing to day-to-day living and farm survival through their off-farm earnings, which is estimated to contribute $2715 million or 84 per cent of all off-farm income. Following International Day of Rural Women last week, we recognise the important contribution that women across the state's agriculture sector provide.
