Asparagus Breeding

Overview:

MSc Position  – Crop Production

An M.Sc. graduate student research position is available in the asparagus breeding program beginning January 1, 2021.  The objective of the thesis project will be to assess the effects of planting depth and density on yield traits in different cultivars.  The project will also assess physiological parameters associated with yield.

The student in this position will be part of a research group actively engaged in traditional breeding, and projects to enhance cultivar development.  This will afford opportunities to gain broad experiences beyond the designated research project.
