Crop diversification is creating new opportunities and growth for a Northern Territory melon farmer
FreshPlaza, Other, 31/05/2021
A Central Australian farmer is diversifying his business by adding some rotational crops to his already successful melon production. Desert Springs Farm in Ali Curung, nearly 400 kilometres north of Alice Springs in the Northern Territory, has been growing watermelons for around 13 years in the region. […] This led to the Northern Australia White Paper, the formation of the CRC for Northern Australia, the formation of the $5billion Northern Australia Infrastructure Fund (NAIF), the creation of the Office of Northern Australia; and a raft of CSIRO long-term research programs.
