W300 Inbred Carrot Line
Inventors: Irwin Goldman
The Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation (WARF) is seeking commercial partners interested in developing a new inbred carrot line marked by Nantes-type rounded tip, uniform and conical roots, and strong attachment of the tops to the roots.
According to the USDA, Wisconsin farmers produced 73,610 tons of carrots in 2010.
UW-Madison researchers have developed a new inbred carrot line that was derived from crosses between two previously released inbred lines. The main characteristics of the new line, W300, are a Nantes-type rounded tip, uniform and conical roots, and strong attachment of the tops to the roots.
