This report records a joint project between the Rural Industries Research and Development Corporation, the Forest Products Commission of Western Australia, Elders Forestry and the University of Western Australia to ensure that 16 of the original plantation trials and plantings of tropical species established in the Ord River Irrigation Scheme (ORIS) by the Western Australian Government were assessed and published.
The main target groups of this research are researchers and managers, especially within the Western Australian Government system, non-governmental organisations and commercial and private companies actively growing sandalwood in the ORIS. The included information on growth rates and essential oil production will be of interest to investors and consultants.
