Commonwealth Government Records about South Australia

14. Primary industries and natural resources

Agriculture, mining and fisheries constitute the major primary industries in South Australia. In addition, the state's wine, seafood, forestry and food industries have been significant in terms of their employment and economic contribution. Commonwealth Government participation in these industries included schemes such as soldier settlement after both world wars, and the placement of 'directable' migrants in rural industry in the post-war era.
