Results from 2016 are here!

It's time to start looking ahead to 2017

2016 ResultsThanks!

We wish to express our sincere thanks to 233 families in North Dakota and surrounding states who participated in the 2016 trials. These families evaluated 99 promising varieties of vegetables and flowers in their gardens. 

Our final report is ready (98 pages). This includes descriptions of trials, extensive data for each variety, comments from gardeners, conclusions for each trial, sources of seed, and our updated list of recommended cultivars. 

A summary report has been prepared (10 pages). This provides essential data, conclusions for each trial, and sources of seed.

We have updated our list of recommended cultivars for North Dakota. This 2-page sheet includes a listing of seed companies that offer free seed catalogs. Now is a great time to request for these catalogs and start making plans for 2017.

We expect to publish our catalog for the 2017 trials in mid-February. If you would like to receive the announcement of our 2017 catalog, please request for more information. We welcome all gardeners (beginners and experts, young and old) to our team!

If you have any questions, please contact Tom Kalb, Department of Plant Sciences.
