A Horticulture Australia Limited (HAL) project, Positioning the Queensland Cut Flower Industry to Strategically Respond to the Impacts of Climate Change, was completed which outlined the potential ramifications for Queensland‟s $151 million commercial cut flower and foliage industry. The resulting publication, The Queensland Cut Flower Industry and Climate Change,has been printed and distributed to Queensland‟s flower industry members and supply chain businesses. The handbook provides a broad overview of the subject as well as practical advice for cut flower growers in areas such as energy, water, soil, pests and disease, weeds and marketing. The book is designed to alert growers to specific threats to key production elements within their businesses and provide strategies to monitor assess and respond to any changes they may identify.
