Tropical Exotic Fruits

Tropical and Exotic Fruits

Tropical and Exotic Fruit are represented by NT Farmers. Growers across the NT and Queensland grow an estimated $9 million worth of fruit annually.

We work to develop the industry by coordinating and commissioning national research and development projects in partnership with RIRDC, DPIR and others. We will develop a stronger, unified voice to provide a more visible profile for tropical exotic crops and will lobby on behalf of growers on critical issues.
