New forecast data available, effective 05/12/2023

What is the Farm Data Portal?
The Farm Data Portal is an interactive tool containing data and outputs from ABARES surveys of broadacre and dairy farms, all in the one location.
You can use the tool to see historical results from ABARES surveys, forecasts of farm financial performance, modelled results from the ABARES farmpredict model, and agricultural productivity estimates.
Why is it called a ‘beta’?
The Farm Data Portal is currently in public beta release. A beta release allows us to test the portal features and make changes based on user feedback, before a full release later in the year.
During the beta, some features may not be fully available. You might also notice some issues with how various elements are displayed. We’re working hard to improve the tool during the beta period.
Throughout the beta, we’ll maintain our legacy tools for accessing ABARES data, such as AgSurf.
The tool is hard to use on my phone. Is there a mobile version?
We’re working to add a more mobile browser friendly view for phone and tablet users. During the beta period, the portal is best viewed through a desktop class browser.
The tool feels slow or doesn’t load for me. Why is that?
The data tool works best on a modern desktop class browser – eg. Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Mozilla Firefox, or Apple Safari.
Can I download the data?
We’re working to add the capacity for users to download selected data directly from the tool.
In the meantime, some users may wish to use the downloadable ‘all data’ workbooks or use the data download feature of AgSurf.
I found an error with the data tool. What should I do?
We’re working hard to fix errors and implement user feedback during the beta phase. If you notice an issue that requires attention or would like to provide feedback, please contact info.ABARES@aff.gov.au with ‘Farm Data Portal Beta’ in the email subject line.
I can’t find the data I want here. Where can I find other ABARES data?
The Farm Data Portal contains data from ABARES surveys of broadacre and dairy farms, and outputs from those surveys. For other ABARES data, see:
