The Agriculture portfolio is supported by the Department of Jobs, Precincts and Regions (DJPR), which was established to create the conditions needed to sustainably develop the Victorian economy and grow employment.
Agriculture Victoria is the commercial interface between the department and private industry. It protects, manages and commercialises new technologies generated by the agriculture research and development divisions of the department. Its current priorities are to enhance Victorian agriculture’s global competitiveness, innovation and resilience.
To meet these goals, Agriculture Victoria delivers policy, research, development, extension, regulation and market access/facilitation services to long established and mature agricultural industries, such as dairy, as well as new and emerging industries, such as alkaloid poppies.
