SBAR researchers, plant breeders, and scientists met at the Bridgestone Research Facility in Eloy, Arizona, in mid-February to finalize research plans for harvesting plants. The 2-year old plants were part of the USDA variety trial that was planted in 2018 at multiple locations in Arizona. These plants will be harvested for the final time in 2020 and it was important for the plant breeders to discuss procedures and parameters for harvest to ensure that each trial location is consistently handled. Results of the final harvest are expected to be compiled and analyzed over the coming months.
