The citrus industry in Western Australia in terms of acreage and production is third in magnitude to pome fruits and grapes. At the present time there are in the vicinity of 390,000 citrus trees planted in commercial orchards in the recognised citrus districts, producing up to half a million bushels per annum. Of the total number of trees 80.7% are oranges; 11.6% lemons; 4.6% grapefruit, and 3.1% mandarins. Production of fruit follows a somewhat similar pattern, except that the proportion of oranges is somewhat less and that of lemons considerably greater than that shown by the number of trees.
