This report describes research designed to support the development of commercial seed production technologies for tedera (Bituminaria bituminosa var. albomarginata ) and includes (a) glasshouse studies to measure seed yield response to different watering regimes prior to and during the period of flowering; (b) controlled field studies to measure the variability within the species for plant characters that influence seed production and (c) harvesting technologies to scale-up seed production for commercial application.
