Developing New Minnesota Grapes


Wine made from Itasca, a cold-hardy grape developed by researchers at the University of Minnesota is available for the first time this year. MSI PI Matt Clark (assistant professor, Horticultural Science) was interviewed about Itasca and other grapes in a story on the College of Food, Agricultural and Natural Resource Sciences website: Grape Expectations!

Professor Clark uses MSI resources for genetic and genomic studies related to developing new varieties of grapes.
