Location: Southern Horticultural Research

Project Number: 6404-21000-009-06
Project Type: Nonfunded Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Jun 01, 2009
End Date: May 31, 2014

Objective:
Evaluate genetically enhanced germplasm for cultivated small fruits. Emphasis will be directed toward cultural and climatic adaptability for the southern United States, increased winter hardiness, extension of harvest season, and potential for mechanical harvesting.
