The industry is supported by a number of R&D service providers who work together to ensure effective collaboration without duplication. The Northern Territory Department of Primary Industry and Fisheries give a high priority to funding research, infrastructure and national coordination for the Australian mango industry. The Queensland and Western Australian Government agencies support the industry by undertaking crop research.
