The first phase of the evaluation of the New Plant program presents a summary of all research projects undertaken, classifies the research by the broad area of impact and assesses each project against broad triple bottom line impact categories. This report presents detailed benefit cost analysis evaluations of a sample of research clusters to illustrate the net benefits resulting from RIRDC’s investment in new plant R&D. The evaluations in this report cover new extractive industries (olives and jojoba), herbs and spices (coriander), beverages (coffee) and black truffles. These commodities are fairly representative of the range of new plants that are supported by the program, with the exception of bush foods. 2004, Pub No. 04/161, 96pgs; $21
