2017 The Ohio State University Field Trial Results

Cultivar trials at The Ohio State University’s (OSU) Chadwick Arboretum and Learning Gardens in Columbus, OH, are conducted each year in order to evaluate ornamental bedding and container plants. The trials are one of the favorite stops in July for Cultivate attendees.

OSU recently started trial evaluations through a new iPad application that instantly updates trial results in real-time as the new evaluations are submitted. For more information on the OSU Digital Evaluator app, contact Dr. Tim Rhodus ([email protected]) and visit the OSU field trials website to learn more about its trials.
