Genetic researchers on the team are looking for an effective genetic test that could be used to screen seedlings and determine which are most suited for mechanical harvesting.

Whiting said the research project will look for funding from other avenues in the years ahead.

“We would like to move a couple of the technologies to commercialization,” he said. “We’re not quite to being able to do that,” he said.
