Tree genomics program sequences 300 macadamia varieties to improve productivity and profitability for growers
The National Tree Genomics program is in the final stages of sequencing over 300 macadamia wild and cultivated varieties.
The national program harnesses cutting-edge genetic technologies for the benefit of Australian horticultural tree crop industries. New tools are currently being developed that will equip Australian plant breeders to deliver new varieties with key productivity and profitability traits. New tools will also stem from this program for growers to enhance farm productivity.Read this success story
