The Queensland Government has announced the makeup of a new committee to oversee its audit of Queensland's agricultural land to determine future food production potential.
The Queensland Agricultural Land Audit will identify land that is important to current and future agricultural production across the state.
The committee includes AAco CEO David Farley, Lockyer Valley vegetable grower Linton Brimblecombe, Canegrowers CEO Steve Greenwood, Queensland Farmers' Federation President Joanne Grainger and AgForce General President Brent Finlay.
"We've focused on the task of compiling all the existing information since the election ready for this committee so it can get straight down to business," Queensland agriculture minister John McVeigh said.
"The audit will involve producing a technical report including information and maps based on the best available data."
