Bio/Research

The University of Guelph Asparagus Breeding Program focuses on the development of all-male hybrid cultivars adapted to northern areas with cold winters. Objectives include yield, quality, longevity, and disease and replant resistance. Additional research is conducted to support the breeding and includes mapping of traits, and analysis of factors important for winterhardiness.

Natural rubber is a strategic commodity used in many products, especially tires. Southeast Asia supplies most of the world’s rubber and shortages and price increases are predicted for the future. To address these issues, Russian Dandelion, Taraxacum kok-saghyz is being bred and domesticated as a new crop for North America. Objectives include increasing rubber yield and percentage, and improving germination and establishment.
