Daikon (Raphanus sativus L.) also known as Japanese radish, has until recently been grown in a few locations in Australia, in particular the Sydney Basin of New South Wales (NSW), by growers of Chinese background. Opportunity to export has promoted some large-scale growers in Victoria, Western Australia (WA) and NSW to produce according to the importer's requirements. This report looks at trials focusing on exports to the Japanese market, as well as enhancing production methods, and varietal suitability, for the domestic market. Post-harvest storage trials were also undertaken. --Back cover.
