Area(s) of Expertise
At the HCRS, we plan and execute field trials, propagate bushes through cuttings and tissue culture, and take notes and data on seedlings, selections, and advanced yield trials.
In addition to breeding activities, ongoing projects include effects of cross pollination within and between species on fruit set and size, optimal conditions for tissue culture in Vaccinium, database development, parental microbiome effects on rooting.
