Evaluation of Acacia as a woody crop option for southern Australia
by B.R. Maslin and M.W. McDonald

RIRDC Publication No. 03/017

Acacia is a diverse and enormous genus with almost 1000 species currently recognized for Australia. There are 462 Acacia species (comprising 538 taxa) that occur naturally within the target area for this study, which encompasses Western Australia, South Australia, Victoria and New South Wales. The AcaciaSearch Report identifies, evaluates and provides detailed information for Acacia species considered prospective as new woody crop plants in the agricultural region of southern Australia (within the 250-650 mm rainfall zone). Large-scale commercial plantings with perennial plants are in demand as a treatment for salinity control in these regions, and species were evaluated for their potential suitability as feedstocks for selected products.
