Obtaining strategic cropping land maps

The current version of the strategic cropping land (SCL) trigger map is available for download. This map results from information provided by the Agricultural Land Audit and the Queensland Land Use Mapping Program.

The trigger map is a starting point for identifying strategic cropping land. The map is based on soil, land and climate information, and indicates the location of land that is expected to be SCL in Queensland. On-ground assessment against the SCL criteria will confirm the extent of SCL at a property or project level.
