ASCFG National Seed Trials PDF Print E-mail

The ASCFG National Cut Flower Trials are recognized as the only national cut flower evaluations in the country. Growers in all zones test new annual, perennial and woody cut flower for hardiness, yield, stem length and marketability. Breeders and suppliers rely on these Trials as an integral part of their cultivar development and evaluation process. Data are compiled by Dr. John Dole at North Carolina State University, where postharvest testing is also done. Find complete seed, perennial and woody trial information at the NCSU site.
