The Projected Expansion of Hybrid Hazelnuts

The Hybrid Hazelnut Consortium seeks to widely increase the commercial production region of hazelnuts in the United States and Canada.

Current vs. Potential Hazelnut Coverage

The primary goal of the Hybrid Hazelnut Consortium is to significantly expand the commercial production region of hazelnuts in the United States and Canada. This goal can be meet by focusing research and breeding efforts on developing productive hazelnuts plants that express durable resistance to the disease eastern filbert blight (EFB) while also enhancing cold hardiness and drought tolerance.
