Inventors: Irwin Goldman, Dwight "Nick" Breitbach
The Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation (WARF) is seeking commercial partners interested in new carrot varieties.
According to the USDA, Wisconsin farmers produced 73,610 tons of carrots in 2010.
UW-Madison researchers have developed a new line of carrots. W279A (sterile) and W279B (maintainer) represent long Chantenay type, inbred carrot lines with medium green foliage. W279 was derived from a cross between W267, an unreleased, inbred line, and W233, an inbred line previously released by the University of Wisconsin Carrot Breeding Program.
- Suitable for use in both fresh market and processing carrot hybrid cultivars
- Long Chantenay type with medium green foliage
