Effect of different host plants on the growth of the root hemiparasite Santalum acuminatum (quandong)



Effect of different host plants on the growth of the root hemiparasite Santalum acuminatum (quandong)



Australian Journal of Experimental Agriculture 42(1): 97-102



In recent years, the root hemiparasite Santalum acuminatum (quandong) has become an increasingly important commercial crop within the indigenous foods market. Relatively little is known of the significance of the host species on quandong growth and development. This paper presents data from a glasshouse pot experiment showing the effect of 4 different host species on the growth of quandong.
