The Australian tea tree industry is an emerging industry that needs ongoing research and support for growth and profitability. While recent industry research has highlighted tree breeding and market development, this report looks at developing alternatives to some of the current practices that growers carry out on a day-to-day basis. Its focus is on insect pest management and weed control during the cropping cycle, and fungicides that could be used against the potential threat of myrtle rust.
