This paper describes and explains the recent very rapid reduction in the number of commodity marketing boards (CMBs) in Queensland. The major causes included changed macro and micro economic policies, changes to national marketing arrangements, reduced producer support for compulsory delivery, producer interest in individual ownership of CMB assets, and producer demands for more flexible marketing systems. The key role of the Queensland Government in encouraging reviews of the CMBs, providing innovative and flexible legislative changes, and providing information and other assistance, is emphasised. Research on the effects of the changes in the commodity marketing arrangements is suggested.
