Our research program has three objectives:

The first objective is to develop new blackberry, strawberry, blueberry and raspberry cultivars for the Pacific Northwest commercial small fruit industry.

Our second major emphasis is to expand germplasm available to plant breeders by collecting wild species of Rubus, Vaccinium and Fragaria. This material is then evaluated and incorporated into advanced breeding material.

A minor part of our program is the identification and evaluation of potential new small fruit crops.
