Citrus in the Murray Valley
Citrus production in the Murray Valley stretches from the South Australian/Victorian border south east through the highly productive areas of Sunraysia, Mid Murray (Swan Hill) to the area surrounding Wangaratta. Broadly speaking it covers the distance of more than 600 kilometres along the Murray River.
