“Rural Australia makes a fundamental contribution to the Australian economy and way of life.  In addition to the major industries, numerous new and emerging rural industries bring opportunity, diversity and resilience to rural Australia.  New industry is critical in the drier areas of southern Western Australia (350-600mm) and these areas desperately need a range of ecologically sustainable industries to address or adapt to declining rainfall, salinity and population decline and biodiversity loss.  Australian perennial flora offers opportunity in this regard.  Many species have the potential to become economically viable for the oil, food, timber, flower or extractive industries.  This project aimed to systematically assess the horticultural potential of southern Western Australia’s diverse tuberous flora and commence commercialisation of promising species as new vegetable crops.”
