This Golden LEAF grant is to be used to help the NC Agricultural Foundation and the NC Muscadine Grape Association create information and industry strategies to establish the NC muscadine grape and its products as an internationally recognized brand. Project objectives include: 1) developing and implementing a strategic plan to guide the development of the muscadine grape and wine industry in NC; 2) for breeding and genetic work to support a contemporary breeding program to develop new cultivars of muscadine grapes; and 3) conducting an analytical survey of muscadine grapes from various genetic and geographic backgrounds to determine the content and variability of antioxidants.
Any project more than a couple of years old may not reflect current Board priorities.
