Using mulch to improve water use efficiency of in-ground native flowers

Poulter, Rachel. Using mulch to improve water use efficiency of in-ground native flowers. Lead Agency: Department of Employment, Economic Development and Innovation (DEEDI).

Project Start: 1 July 2009

Project End:26 June 2012

Abstract

Monitoring of soil moisture fluctuations under mulched and un-mulched native flowers will provide valuable information in assessing the crop water use and potential water savings associated with adoption of this practise. This information would be valuable in encouraging growers to adopt best management practises for sustainable flower production.
