While good farm business practice has been effective in driving a strong and resilient agricultural economy, there is no room for complacency as the sector squares up to some significant new challenges and an accelerating pace of changing risk exposure. The impacts of climate change are exacerbating the complexity of risk management both directly and indirectly throughout supply chains, and institutional risk is emerging as a serious concern.
