The 2016 harvest is now complete. Across the region the overall production was down around 10% on the previous year. If anything, the previous 2 years had been exceptional crops as the growing periods were blessed with excellent rain plus long periods of sunshine. Perfect for growing.
After the 2016 harvest, good soaking rains and sunshine, have brought on new shoots which are beautiful and lush. The great team of contractors used on the plantations have yet again proven that a strict regime of plant nutrition, pest and weed control delivers a consistent and excellent crop.
It is expected that as the majority of the 2015 crop had been sold industry wide this year’s lower production will see an increase in oil price as demand still runs high.
Not surprisingly the market understands the deleterious consequences of adulterated tea tree oil and our clients insist on buying their tea tree oil which meets with Australian Tea Tree Industry Association (ATTIA) Code Of Practice and is certified Pure Australian Tea Tree Oil.
Our tea tree oil analysis conducted at the Southern Cross University laboratory has shown yet again our tea tree oil maintains a constant and high quality.
Last year we planted native trees along the riverbank adjoining the plantations. Those earlier native plantings have done so well we are about to expand the project further upriver to replace invasive exotic plants with Australian native species from this area. Over the next few weeks we will plant over 500 native plants. A legacy to our future on the property.
