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”.
