Australia - March 16th, 2009

Countless fields create tan, green and brown checked patterns across the land of northeastern New South Wales, Australia. Agriculture is spread throughout this state, except in the western third.

New South Wales produces a large share of Australia’s hay, fruit, legumes, lucerne, maize, nuts, wool, wheat, oats, oilseeds (about 51%), poultry, rice (about 99%), vegetables, fishing including oyster farming, and forestry including wood chips.

The cotton industry is centred in the Namoi Valley in northwestern New South Wales, although there is also a large cotton-growing area in the upper part of this image.

The brown, non-cultivated land in the lower portion of the image is the Pilliga Nature Reserve, mostly located in White County.
