- a contract for processing at a planned mill, or
- minimum annual planting area of 250 ha in a region to support an agronomist, a harvester group, and small modular production facilities,
- processing knowledge for syrups, inulin or spirits.
Details for commercial growers on site visits, administration/agreement forms and contracts are available on registration with AusAgave.
