Abstract

Western Australia produces a range of horticultural commodities including fruit, vegetables, flowers, nursery products and wine as part of its fast $670 million growing horticultural industry. Natural advantages such as climate and clean environment, soils and water make Western Australia an ideal place to supply a variety of high quality produce to domestic and international markets.

The apple industry in Western Australia has reached optimal yields from well established orchards. Production is currently estimated at a value of $37 million. Western Australia is the second major apple exporter in Australia. Around 20 per cent of the state's production of 37,745 tonnes was exported in 2004.
