Reading Part 3 

Agriculture in Australia

Traditionally, Australia was   for producing wheat and                             FAME

wool, but times have changed in  years, with many                                  RECENTLY

farmers   to be more diverse in their                                                   ELECT

crop and livestock range. It is now quite common to see farms

with more exotic fruit and vegetables. Farmers are  to                             LIKE

sell their produce locally nowadays, but rather to the factories in

the cities. As a result, farms are now large-scale                                PRODUCE

where thousands of tonnes of crops are cultivated.

Another aspect that is different nowadays is  . In the                         IRRIGATE

past, farmers would just flood the fields but now it is common to see

sprinkler everywhere. This means that more water                                SYSTEMATIC

is conserved, which has been helpful with the drought that

has severely impacted the of the farms in the                                      MAJOR

southern states of the country.
