New and emerging industries need readily accessible information about farm production, processing and marketing techniques. Information about the nature of the international and domestic markets that each emerging industry will be supplying is often neglected.
This report identifies a broad range of new and emerging industries in Australia, at various stages in their development cycles. This is the third edition of Emerging animal and plant industries—their value to Australia, all of which have been funded by the Rural Industries Research and Development Corporation. The first edition was published in 2005 and the second edition in 2009. The 2014 edition has been extended to include information about international markets for new industries that are prospective in Australia, but where there are not yet commercial producers; for example, the guar and stevia industries.
