Coriander spice seed has been grown in Australia since the 1970’s and in 1998 production was estimated to be 5,000 tonnes worth $5.75 million in export income for the Australian economy. More recently, production has declined, principally through the effects of disease on yields and production costs. A major problem is bacterial blight which is widespread, very damaging and has no effective control in infected crops.
