The four regions of Western Australia's south-west land division contribute over $6 billion to the gross value of agriculture production. 

To understand the value of the Wheatbelt, Mid West, Great Southern and Goldfields-Esperance regions, view our regional snapshots which contain infographic summaries of agricultural production and industry trends in the regions.

The snapshots enable easy comparison of cropping, livestock and horticultural industries across and within the Wheatbelt, Mid West, Great Southern and Goldfields-Esperance (Esperance Port Zone) regions, including  the relative value of broadacre agriculture and annual broadacre cropping production. 

The relative proportion of individual grain commodities produced in each region has been captured along with livestock numbers and production values and the composition and value of horticultural industries.  

Data on landholder numbers and their average size is included using the available ABS census data with figures on regional populations, employment and businesses.

Production trends using the latest data for each snapshot will be updated later in the year – enabling comparisons within and between regions to be made over time.
