Originating from Mexico, agave plants have been used since ancient times for food, fibre and building. Agave is now growing in Australia as a commercial crop. AusAgave’s proven cropping systems help ensure the highest yields of sugar and fibre.
With similar climatic zones to Mexico and Brazil, Australia has excellent environments for selected commercial agave crops. AusAgave can assist growers with selection of agave species and cultivars for specific locations. Agave succeeds in drought conditions, high temperatures, and when grown on marginal lands, where other crops are unable to grow. It requires only minimal fertiliser and is naturally disease and pest resistant. Australian crops have shown no evidence of disease. Agave can be harvested at any time of the year making it a versatile crop choice for all processing options.
