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.
