Abstract: (En)
Irrigated horticultural production has expanded rapidly over the last two decades in the ORIA (Ord River Irrigation Area), to the extent that gross value of production from ORIA is about 10% of total Western Australia horticultural output. In cucurbit crops, this region is a major national supplier particularly from July to September. The ORIA is one of the major horticulture production areas in WA, and is favourably situated, with water and land resources available for large scale expansion, and access t anana pest and diseases recognition and banana grading specification charts. Information on costs and returns associated with tissue culture plants, and problems such as off-types percentage is necessary also. For low volume or new crops such as papaya,
sparagus, tropical tree exotics, citrus and selected vegetables, the primary information required is on variety suitability for ORIA, marketing windows, export potential and planting material sources. This report evaluates current horticultural farming
