Agriculture is the back bone of Australia’s economic system with two-thirds of the land being invested heavily in farming production, allowing up to 70% of the country able to rely directly on agriculture as a means of making a living.
While agriculture is a great business to be in, there are many unknown constraints that may hinder the economic potential for farmers. Challenges are bound to happen such as uncertain weather conditions that may affect your fully-grown harvests, unfavourable storms that may damage your property including your home, sheds, equipment, and more.
