The agriculture sector is a major industry in the Boort area which is a part of the Loddon Shire, and is also known as the Loddon Valley area. This is characterised by a diverse mix of traditional agriculture, new horticulture investments, and broadacre and intensive farming with high quality modernised irrigation systems to support and sustain growth.
These features, combined with the region’s ideal Mediterranean climate clearly show why this area is suitable for a wide range of cropping, horticulture and stock enterprises.
