This project aimed to demonstrate conversion of a conventional mango orchard to a certified organic system in the Ord River Irrigation Area (ORIA) at Kununurra in the far north-east of Western Australia. Partners in the project were mango grower Parker Poynt Plantation (PPP) and compost producer Kununurra Compost.

The technical feasibility and commercial viability of certified organic production was investigated and reported. The demonstration site was on an existing established commercial mango orchard and provided a practical and realistic example for other growers in the region to scrutinise and consider.
