          Spring Planting Season Has Begun

The greenhouse is coming alive on the University of Nebraska–Lincoln East Campus!

Hybrid seedlings grown from Oregon State and Rutgers seeds are being moved from the germination trays to one-gallon nursery cans this week. These seedlings were planted the week of March 5 and will be field tested at Horning Farm starting this fall and in spring 2013.

Older seedlings will be field planted at Horning this spring. More than 3,000 seedlings will be planted at Horning Farm for the next round of trials.
