Projects

Tissue culture techniques for pyrethrum (2020 - 2021)$61,639
Description
*The Tasmanian pyrethrum industry are seeking a method to store their high yielding pyrethrum lines and to quickly bulk up plants with favourable phenotypes/genotypes for further evaluation.*The current methods of bulking up plants involve splitting plants into smaller plants manually, which is both stressful on the plants and only allows a few splits per plant. Plants must also be of sufficient size prior to splitting which limits the ability to bulk up young plants.*This project will develop tissue culture techniques for use on field plants. It will include techniques to propagate, store, and acclimatise plants for replanting. Development of such techniques will also be beneficial to future pyrethrum projects that TIA are involved in as it will allow true replicates of plant genotypes to be included in experiments (including in the current projects on pyrethrum disease and vernalisation).
