Developed by Dr. Claudio Pasian and managed by William Barnhill, the Ohio State University Cultivar Trials are conducted each year in order to evaluate ornamental bedding and container plants.
The objective of these trials is to observe the performance of new and recently introduced cultivated plant varieties under environmental conditions typical of central Ohio.
For 2016, the Cultivar Trials will employ a new approach to digital evaluations. Designed by Dr. Tim Rhodus, Professor Horticulture & Crop Science, volunteers and visitors can employ an online survey tool, Qualtrics for recording preferences. Results will be uploaded and made available
