Citrus Growers Fund

The Citrus Growers Fund supports South Australian citrus growers. Payments from the Fund are made to Citrus Australia South Australia Region, for it to carry out projects and activities that benefit the Industry.

Citrus fund grower contributions

Citrus growers contribute $1.00 to the fund for every tonne of citrus fruit packed.

Your contribution is deducted by the packer or the processor from the price it pays for your fruit and paid to the Department of Primary Industries and Regions SA (PIRSA).
