Welcome to TAP AgriCo

Nearly one third of Tasmania’s land area (68,300 sq km) is committed to agriculture. 

Tasmania has some of the world’s most productive soils and the people who work in the agriculture sector take pride in using cutting-edge technology in their production methods, packaging and marketing.

The Tasmanian Government has placed a moratorium on the commercial production of GM crops.
