Research Project: Carrot Germplasm Development and Farmer Training for Production in Stressful Environments

Location: Vegetable Crops Research

Project Number: 5090-21000-069-41-T
Project Type: Trust Fund Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Jul 1, 2018
End Date: Sep 30, 2020

Objective:
1) Develop carrot germplasm for warm climates in Asia and U.S. 2) Trial carrot production in warm climates

Approach:
1) Field test performance of carrot germplasm in Asian climates, select germplasm with superior performance, release germplasm. 2) Grow carrots on local farms, train them to phenotype abiotic stress and other performance traits, and collect information they gather to include in characterization of germplasm.
