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. Inbred carrot line W280 is a long Danvers type with a tapered root and light green foliage. W280 was derived from a cross between the unreleased inbred lines, W261 and W262. W280A is a green petaloid sterile and W280B is the maintainer genotype.
- Suitable for use in both fresh market and processing carrot hybrid cultivars
- Long Danvers type with a tapered root and light green foliage
