Plant industries development

The Northern Territory (NT) is renowned for growing mangoes.  It supplies more than half the mangoes produced in Australia. The NT also grows tropical fruit, vegetables, flowers, stock feed and forestry products. 

There is significant potential for further development of plant industries in the Northern Territory to grow food, fibre and foliage.
