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. We have been working with them under a Material Transfer Agreement with Oregon State University for research purposes since January 2017.
