This report documents an integrated approach for on-farm testing of grafted wildflowers.

A large market exists for out-of-season production of currently grown species and for the provision of commercial quantities of new products that have passed preliminary testing or are currently bush-picked. Many of these species have specific limitations which prevent expansion into new production areas or are uneconomic to cultivate because of problems when grown on their own roots. This project examined the feasibility of the use of grafted wildflowers at a practical on-farm level with an economic perspective.

This report is targeted at members of the Australian Wildflower Industry and propagators who supply this industry.
