Minnesota Nursery Research Corporation

The Minnesota Nursery Research Corporation (MNRC) is a non-profit horticultural organization that sponsors scientific research for the commercial growing industry. Since 1957, MNRC has collected voluntary payments from propagators of U of M ornamental and fruit introductions and contributed over $2.5 million to the U of M Department of Horticultural Science. Generous MNRC participants are dedicated to supporting research science and breeding efforts. They believe in the development of cold hardy, disease resistant, prolific and profitable future cultivars and varieties. In other words, they support the future of the industry. Due to funding and budgetary cutbacks, MNRC payments are critical and greatly appreciated. Please seek U of M introductions from MNRC participants. More information about the MNRC is available on their website.

If you are a propagator and would like to support the future of the industry by participating in MNRC, please email Doug Danielsen at ddanielsen@bachmans.com.
