ARIGUM: A NEW CROP FOR AGRIFORESTRY/AGRICULTURAL USE
A company in Perth, Western Australia has developed a new
crop for industrial use called Arigum. The Arigum plant
has been developed from an arid land plant and as such it
can survive in low rainfall areas with little attention.
The beauty of Arigum is that it provides industrial
quality resins which can replace petrochemical products.
The Arigum plant is highly salt resistant and has been
trialed by farmers with good results. A Spokesperson was
quoted as saying: It is good to see that new crops can
be developed which can not only offer an alternative, but
which can benefit the environment and economy as well.
