Molecular bio-markers & physiological genomics of Papaver bracteatum seeds
Dr. Phani Raja Kumar Madam
Sustainable commercial production of Papaver bracteatum in Tasmania will benefit from the development of guidelines for successful cultivation of the crop. Production guidelines should include recommendations for achieving uniform stands of seedlings at the target density given that, for a range of crops, yield has been shown to be strongly influenced by the success of the establishment phase. The establishment phase is largely influenced by two main factors; the planting environment and the quality of the seed.
