NC State Extension

Replicated Cultivar and Selection Breeding Trials

Each year the NC State University Strawberry Breeding program evaluates cultivars from other breeding programs along with advanced selections from our program. Below is a link to a spreadsheet with all the data we have collected since 2015 and tables of the data from those years.

We conduct replicated trials, meaning we have 3 plots of  20 plants each of the genotypes (cultivars or advanced breeding lines). This replication ensures that our data is robust. Meaning, that even though we try to make the fields as even as possible, there are always low spots or areas that seem to have gotten a bit more cold damage, so by having more than one replication, we can be sure that our data is good and represents the performance of that genotype.

Our two locations are the Central Crops Research Station (CCRS) in Clayton NC and the Piedmont Research Station in Salisbury NC. In general, we plant about the first week of October at the CCRS is about 10-14 days earlier at the PRS.

We also have most of the data posted below. At this time, we are not able to post the entire tables into this page, they are too wide, mostly just the last column of statistics is missing. But we are working on a way to get them in their entirety online soon.
