Hybrid Hazelnut Consortium

The Hybrid Hazelnut Consortium is committed to creating a 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 bioenergy.

The consortium is comprised of four organizations dedicated to this goal: the Arbor Day Foundation, Oregon State University, Rutgers University, and the Nebraska Forest Service/University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

New Grant to Expand Research

The consortium has received $3.1 million from the USDA to continue its work on developing next-generation hybrids that can expand commercial hazelnut production in the U.S.
