Client: A Tasmanian propagation nursery
Project delivery period: 2016-2017
Seedling nurseries provide vegetable growers with plants in seedling trays that are planted out into the field. Some brassicas, and cauliflowers in particular, can have a small proportion of “blind” plants that do not form a head. We are assisting a Tasmanian nursery to identify whether insects are the primary cause or if it is mainly environmental. This is a privately funded project.
