The horticulture sector is made up of a very diverse range of fruit, vegetable, nursery, cut flowers and turf industries. This significant primary industries sector makes up 9% of total GVP and the combined horticulture value ranks as the third largest industry. The sector has grown by 16% from 2013-14 levels, which is attributed to increasing demand for NSW fresh produce both domestically and abroad. Key developing industries such as nuts and blueberries have contributed heavily to growth, while traditional NSW horticulture industries continue to provide stable support to the sector.
