New Selections from the Strawberry Breeding Club.

 

Come and see the most promising performers from the Strawberry Breeding Club at our annual ‘Strawberry Walk’.

 

The event will provide you with the opportunity to view and taste the most interesting new mid and late season selections, as well as the chance to influence decisions on which lines will ultimately be released to the industry, through your valued feedback.

 

Adam Whitehouse, Project Lead, NIAB EMR, will present the results and be available to discuss the selections and answer any of your questions.

 

The Strawberry Breeding Club at NIAB EMR aims to breed varieties with overlapping seasons which produce high yields of excellent quality fruit. The objective is also to develop selections which offer pest and disease resistance and display their fruit in a way which is easier and quicker to pick, thereby reducing labour costs.
