Learn About the Goal of the Hybrid Hazelnut Consortium

The Consortium is working to develop hybrid hazelnuts into a sustainable crop for much of United States and Southern Canada. Get up to speed by viewing this Fact Sheet.

Hybrid Hazelnut Consortium

The Consortium will build on past hazelnut research and breeding by its four institutions/ organizations: Arbor Day Foundation, Oregon State University, Rutgers University, and University of Nebraska.

The goal of the Hybrid Hazelnut Consortium is to create a world leading research and breeding program to develop hazelnuts as a widely adapted, high-yielding and low-input sustainable crop that is competitive with annual crops for food, feed or bio-energy.
