Start Date: Sep 10, 2012
End Date: Sep 09, 2017
Berries for this project will come mainly from plots at the North Willamette Research and Extension Center but may also come from other research fields in Corvallis or Washington or from grower fields. Selections and cultivars will be sampled throughout their harvest periods to track variations in fruit quality over time. New selections will be processed and analyzed from one to three times. Advanced selections will be sampled weekly. Amendment #5 adds funds to continue the current research objectives and will be used to process and evaluate current advanced selections and varieties and prepare results for use by industry and breeders.
