This RIRDC publication addresses the specific information needs of organic citrus producers and growers who are interested in converting to organic systems.

It bridges the gap between ‘standard’ and organic methods to ease the transition for growers who seek to change selected practices for environmental and marketing reasons.

Within the citrus industry – one of Australia’s major horticultural producers and exporters – there has been growing interest in improving the industry’s overall environmental performance and in organic production specifically. This has been driven by market demands, the global trend towards reduced impact of agriculture and concerns regarding soil health.
