SUMMARY of VEGETABLE VARIETY TRIALS FAIRBANKS, ALASKA 1985Wagner, P.J.; Matheke, G.; Griffith, M. (Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station, School of Agriculture and Land Resources Management, University of Alaska-Fairbanks, 1986-01)This report summarizes evaluations of vegetable varieties conducted by the Horticultural Research Program of the University of Alaska-Fairbanks. The objective of this research is to select varieties of vegetables that are adapted to the environment of interior Alaska. Vegetable crops whose adaptability may be improved through development of improved cultural techniques are also identified. The selection effort is directed at finding varieties useful to both commercial growers and home gardeners. Varieties are chosen for inclusion in the variety tests on the basis of their description, the latitude of origin, and the record of the plant-breeding programs for producing kinds that have previously been found adapted. Standard recommended varieties are included in the trials for comparison.
