Broccoli plant growing in a field

The Eastern Broccoli Project is wrapping up a decade of variety trials showcasing summer production of commercial crown cut broccoli. This year’s trial highlights the most popular varieties in the industry and leading-edge breeding material that are included for a total of  30 varieties/lines. Through this project, Western North Carolina growers are poised to help enable year-round broccoli production on the east coast.

The NC Alternative Crops and Organics Program is hosting two opportunities for growers to view the labeled varieties and meet the researchers at small group field meetings. The project is based at the Mountain Research Station in Waynesville. Growers must register in advance, and sign in on-site will be required.

2021 Field Dates:

Thursday, July 29, 9–11 a.m. Register by July 27

Thursday, August 5, 9–11 a.m. Register by August 3
