The Moora Citrus Project has been established to provide investors with the opportunity to carry on the business of commercially growing quality, fresh citrus fruit near the town of Moora, a two hour drive north of Perth.
'4 Star' Investment Rating by Adviser Edge
Cash flow expected from Year 3
19 year project
168,000 citrus trees when fully planted
Access to an underground water supply with only “a small risk of any shortfall”
Targeting local WA fresh fruit market initially, thereafter expanding to markets in Asia


To date, the West Australian citrus industry has been comprised of local producers with insufficient scale to satisfy demand. Approximately 60% of fresh citrus fruit sold in Western Australia each year is sourced from outside Western Australia.

Additionally, with the short term production issues in the Murray-Darling Basin, stemming from a lack of irrigation water, a market opportunity exists for the Moora Citrus Project.

Large retailers are demanding higher volumes of preferred grades of oranges (comprising quality and size) than WA citrus growers can currently supply.

WA consumers prefer locally grown fruit to imported fruit when product performance is comparable.

The close proximity to the Asian market provides an advantage for major West Australian citrus producers compared to those located in the Eastern States of Australia.

Agcorp Australia Pty Ltd is the Project Manager for the Moora Citrus Project.

Agcorp Australia and its Directors have experience spanning: 
In excess of 25 years management of an export grain, pork and wool production operation, featuring agronomic experience, animal production and export supply chain development
15 years management of enterprise and capacity building projects in regional communities across Australia
In excess of 30 years of national accounting experience specialising in companies involved in agribusiness.

Complementing Agcorp Australia's skills and experience are specialist advisers with national and international backgrounds in their respective fields of hydrogeology and irrigation system development, citrus industry development and nursery management.

The Project Manager is employing a number of horticultural practices that are designed to minimise the impact of risks such as:
Pests and disease

The location selected for the orchard brings with it some important benefits, including:
Its position above an aquifer
Being situated higher in the landscape to minimise the potential impact of frosts
Well draining soils
