MEMBER for Burnett Stephen Bennett has hailed the rise in students studying agriculture and environmental courses as "a great sign for Queensland's future".

Queensland Tertiary Admission Centre showed fields with a higher increase in applicant popularity included information technology, engineering and agriculture and environment - with 812 'first preferences' for agriculture and environment alone.

"Agriculture is one of the four pillars of the Queensland economy and this is a really positive sign for the future of the industry in Queensland," Mr Bennett said.
