Resource assessment

The Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development assesses resource use for sustainable agriculture by carrying out surveillance and project level monitoring; evaluation of resource condition and trends; setting resource assessment standards, systems and procedures; and reporting this information to resource managers. The intent of this work is to establish baselines and targets for resource condition, to assist managers to choose production technologies and systems that maintain or improve resource condition.
