NY112 - The Development of Australian Acacias for Flowering Pot Plant Production

The aim of the research was to develop methods for the production of flowering pot plants of Acacia. The results show that this was a realistic aim and that flowering plants of some species could be placed on the market within one year from seed. The project was funded for only two of the three years requested and the final year was to be spent refining the commercial protocol from seed to consumer. In the absence of funding this was not done and definite recommendations to the industry on the adoption protocol could not be made.
