Innovation - Austem

To achieve its mission, Austem is committed to innovation, co-operation and partnership in every aspect of its activities:

• We have entered into a long term breeding contract with Kings Park and Botanic Gardens for selection, breeding and vegetative propagation of Corymbia Ficofolia ("Flowering Gums").

• We have established a grafting facility at Merricks in Victoria to enable immediate supply of a limited number of superior Corymbia Ficofolia to the market whilst waiting for more cost effective vegetative propagation methods from the Kings Park research.

• We have outsourced production and distribution to Native Plant Wholesalers.
