Western Australia has a small but growing industry which represents less than 10% of the total Australian citrus plantings.

The Wheatbelt spans across 154,862 square kilometres in the south west of Western Australia which equates to an area twice the size of Tasmania. Agriculture and mining are the region’s main revenue earners. The Wheatbelt’s agricultural industry is the state’s main producer of cereal crops and contributes to other products such as canola, olives, vegetables, wine grapes, honey, livestock and of course, citrus.
