Abstract

T HE permanent settlement of Queensland commenced somewhat more than a century ago and, during the intervening years, agricultural and pastoral pursuits have become firmly established throughout the State. The degree of development achieved in the different branches of plant industry has varied appreciably, however, and a survey of the present status and distribution of crops and pastures in the State should be useful and interesting both to Queenslanders and to residents of other Australian States and overseas countries. Some aspects of the survey will doubtless deal with points familiar to many Queenslanders, but it is believed that Queensland readers will find something of interest to them in the discussions on districts with which they are not personally familiar. This pamphlet is accordingly devoted, firstly, to a survey of the State and its farm, orchard, and market garden crops and pastures, and, secondly, to a somewhat brief discussion o.f the organisation and
activities of the Department of Agriculture and Stock and kindred institutions which function within the State.
