2012-13 planfarm Bankwest benchmarks survey

media releases

20 August 2013

New statistics from over 500 Western Australian broadacre farm businesses have been compiled in the 2012-13 Planfarm Bankwest Benchmarks, Australia’s largest and most comprehensive annual farm performance survey. Below average yields were offset by buoyant commodity prices which rose throughout 2012 and assisted to maintain farm operating surpluses and positive returns. Whilst 2012 return on capital for the average farm was below expectations at 1.07%, it is worth noting that since 2007 we have had three years with return over 6%.
