Galanthamine is a bioactive that has proven effect to reduce the effect of Alzheimer's. A source of natural galanthamine is from daffodils, but only certain varieties grown under specific conditions produce enough galanthamine to make it economically viable to extract for commercial purposes. Agroceutical Products, UK, have shown that this is possible in Wales. This project was to investigate the production of daffodil galanthamine grown on small areas on sheep farms in New Zealand.
