Abstract

Tasmania is an important potato production area of Australia. Its unique combination of climate and soils help determine the scale of operations and shape the diverse farming system practiced by growers. This chapter briefly describes Tasmania's geography, the farming systems of which potato production is part, and introduces some of the management challenges facing the industry, which are the subjects of further discussion in Chaps. 16-19.
