Continuing Research Advances Hazelnuts
The collaborative research initiative undertaken by the Consortium blends modern and classical breeding techniques, ensuring the development of the highest-quality hybrid hazelnut plants. Currently, the five research institutions of the Hybrid Hazelnut Consortium are engaged in cooperative, scientific research and breeding of hybrid hazelnuts. Thanks to this cooperation, developing widely adapted and productive hazelnut cultivars as quickly as possible can be a reality.
