Asparagus - potential green gold for the Northern Territory

Asparagus is not a new crop for the Northern Territory, with commercial production in place since the mid-1990s. Production has declined in the Northern Territory due a range of factors including: the inability to control anthracnose (a fungal pathogen), currency fluctuations and historically high interest rates. The purpose of this article is to summarise the global and national context with regards to technical issues and market opportunities for fresh asparagus grown in the Northern Territory.
