Genetic gains in oil yields after nine years of breeding Melaleuca alternifolia (Myrtaceae)
A breeding program to enhance the economics of producing essential oil (Australian tea tree oil) from Melaleuca alternifolia plantations in eastern Australia by improving oil yields and oil quality commenced in 1993. This paper reports the results of the first (2003) and second harvests (2004) of a yield trial established by the program in 2002. The trial compares the performance of three grades of seed (clonal seed orchard, first generation seedling seed orchard and selected provenance)...[Show more]
