The tea tree oil industry has recognised the need for up to date information on best practice crop nutrition strategies that take into account the effects of different soil types, growing conditions and cultural methods. This scoping study will identify and document current nutrition management in Australian tea tree plantations, determine the key limitations of current nutrition practices and provide solutions for best management, and report this information to the industry and provide recommendations for future research, development and extension. These research outputs will be achieved via a literature review and extensive consultation with tea tree oil producers and industry experts.
