Consortium Partners Present Findings
A few weeks ago Dr. Shawn Mehlenbacher from Oregon State wrote about his recent trip to Chile with Oregon hazelnut researchers and growers where he presented at a conference and also visited Chilean nurseries and hazelnut farms.
Below is a partial list of other presentations and articles published by Consortium members over the past year detailing our work to create hybrid hazelnuts that are blight-resistant and can grow in areas with hot and cold weather extremes. For a comprehensive list, see the Hybrid Hazelnut Consortium website.
