Identifying Australia’s Key Advantage in Agriculture

Genetically modified vegetables are inevitably going to take over the world through a combination of climate change, lack of farmable land and declining soil quality but they certainly won’t solve all our problems. Especially considering there is no adequate substitute for protein, for which global demand is expected to rise 50% by 2030.

Genetically modified vegetables are inevitably going to take over the world through a combination of climate change, lack of farmable land and declining soil quality but they certainly won’t solve all our problems. Especially considering there is no adequate substitute for protein, for which global demand is expected to rise 50% by 2030.

No population figures are complete without understanding the volume stemming from China but with their undeniable rising middle class, so too comes increased demand for red meat. Going are the days where a standard diet consisted of just rice, vegetables and a side of spine soup.

Addressing these issues, the concept of regenerative farming is an interesting one for investors to take note of, and one of the fundamental concepts employed by emerging agricultural producer Australian Food & Farming (AFF).

Since the 1960’s, Australia has doubled it’s annual yield of crops but have done so using just 11 per cent more farmland. Is this by choice? No – expanding metropolis’, inconsistent rainfall and absolutely hammering any arable land we have meant there is an abundance of distressed land which cannot be used for agriculture, at present.

And that concept of ‘presence’ is where the problem lies amongst short-sighted farmers that live crop-to-crop. Through the threat of climate change, natural disaster and a general trend of increased consumption of processed foods, plenty of farmers are doing it tough out there.

With long-term regenerative farming in mind however, AFF have been targeting distressed properties across both Australian coasts to reinvigorate for agriculture and to replenish pastures capable of maintaining masses of Australian livestock – the best natural source of protein.

Red meat is core to Australia’s key advantage in agriculture and as an emerging producer, AFF has aspirations of becoming Australia’s largest low-cost lamb producer and are certainly on their way with more than 40,000 acres of land under management and a flock of more than 9,000 sheep.
