ABARES ongoing research into Australia’s agricultural sector has included analysing the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Since March 2020, specific COVID-19 and related research reports have been released:
- Australian agricultural trade and the COVID-19 pandemic
- Impacts of COVID-19 on Australian agriculture, forestry and fisheries trade
- Australia’s food security and the COVID-19 pandemic
- Snapshot of Australian Agriculture 2020
ABARES produced 11 facts sheets between March and July 2020 to provide regular analysis of the impact of COVID-19 on agricultural trade.
These were published on the Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment’s coronavirus website. In these fact sheets, ABARES tracked trends such as price changes, the role of imports in food production, and changes to supply chain.
The fact sheets are available in the Agricultural trade implications of COVID-19 compilation report.
