Nature Tech Nursery is proud to announce that we now have a license to grow and sell the newer improved varieties Wepster (CDN PBRAF# 18-9480) and McDonald (CDN PBRAF# 18-9479), which are protected with Plant Breeders Rights (PBR) in Canada. In addition, we have permission to offer for sale Dorris (also released as a main crop variety), Felix and York (released as pollenizers). There is an additional cost of $1.50 ea for these five varieties because of the royalty fee Nature Tech Nursery is required to pay in the US for them. Since we have been working with them under a Material Transfer Agreement with Oregon State University for research purposes since January 2017, we have production well in hand in our tissue culture lab, and the first shipments to customers for orchard planting will go out in fall of 2019. New orders received by early in 2019 are now for a fall 2020 ready date.
Funding is available to remove old orchards or to plant new ones. Growers planting new varieties may be eligible for up to $5 per tree for up to 10 acres of new planting.
