North Dakota Home Garden Variety Trials

To identify the best varieties for gardeners, it makes sense to test them in gardens.

Spring is Here!

North Dakota State University is looking for gardeners to help evaluate vegetable, herb and cut-flower varieties. We'll work together to discover which varieties grow best for us in North Dakota. 

Everyone in North Dakota is welcome to participate. This includes commercial growers and backyard gardeners.

We focus on working with gardeners in North Dakota but will work gardeners in adjacent states/provinces living in nearby counties.  

We are offering 62 trials this year. Each trial is a comparison of two varieties. Grow the two varieties side-by-side, and let us know which variety you prefer.

You may order online or mail in your order. 

Happy Spring!
