Victoria’s agricultural sector produces $13.16 billion of agricultural product from 12 million hectares, making it a vital contributor to economic growth, and social and economic wellbeing across Victoria. When farming operations are sustainably managed, they can help preserve and restore critical habitats, protect watersheds, and improve soil health and water quality. But when practiced without care, the sector also has the potential for a range of environmental threats and impacts.
EPA Victoria has information and advice that can help you manage your farm to minimise harm to the environment. This page provides farmers and others in the agricultural sector with information about how you could manage the impacts from your agricultural operations.
The information provided here is for information only. It may not always be relevant to your farm and does not cover all impacts from your operation. You should continue to seek advice and information from other sources such as your agro-consultant, local council, local Catchment Management Authority, and Agriculture Victoria. It does not constitute legal advice and you should seek your own legal advice.
