Phytocultures is undertaking research endeavours to generate production and management advice for hobby and commercial clients as well as refine and improve varieties for qualities of hardiness, yield, taste, ease of harvest, insect and disease resistance, and maximum growth performance. Along with our advanced breeding efforts on-site and ongoing collaboration with the University of Saskatchewan, we are furthering research through a project with the National Research Council.
In 2008 we established a five-variety replicated research plot of Haskap plants to evaluate and compare plant varieties and berries under commercial conditions. By profiling these new varieties of Haskap, we can identify critical production and management techniques to aid in crop development, offer production recommendations for producers, determine traits for commercialization, and develop a potential new berry industry along with our clients in various parts of North and South America.
