Develop Australian Standards For Oil Of Australian Lavandin Cultivars

Summary

AT PRESENT THERE ARE NO STANDARDS FOR THE MAJORITY OF THE LAVANDIN OILS PRODUCED IN AUSTRALIA. THE PURPOSE OF THIS PROPOSED RESEARCH IS TO: 1. Collect and analyse lavandin oils from Australian lavandin oil producers and collate the data for the purpose of developing new Australian Standards to suit the range of lavandin oil cultivars which are currently grown and for which no Standard(s) exist. 2. Use the collected data to determine if the present Australian Standard AS 50282002 for Lavandin GROSSO oil satisfactorily accommodates the typical GROSSO oils derived from Australian grown plants , and to recommend revisions if it does not.
