Australia’s tea tree oil industry is reaping the benefits of 25 years of research and development funding with a $6 million investment yielding $35 million annually in export sales. Key gains for growers include a jump from early oil yields of 100-150 kilograms per hectare to new cultivars which consistently yield 350-450 kg/ha.
