The Western Australian cauliflower industry is largely centered around the south-west of the State which, with its cool winter climate and medium to heavy loam soils is well suited to year round cauliflower production and accounts for 77% of State’s output. The Shire of Manjimup alone accounts for about 60% of the State’s cauliflower production. The second most significant region is the Swan Coastal Plain which has lighter soils, and a warmer climate. The Swan Coastal Plain is also suitable for year round production. Market analysis indicates that West Australian cauliflower, whilst appearing more expensive than produce from the Eastern States or the USA and China, benefits from a quality advantage. This quality is in high demand in South East Asian markets.
