Project Number: 5402-21000-014-04
Start Date: Sep 01, 2010
End Date: Aug 31, 2013
Collections of Oregon Crabapple (Malus fusca) wild populations will contribute novel, desirable genetic resources to the National Plant Germplasm System. Seeds and plants will be provided to the USDA-ARS Plant Genetic Resources Unit Apple collection in Geneva, NY. Genetic diversity of individuals identified during collection trips will be compared with that of other wild apple populations.
