Australian Strawberry Breeding Program (ASBP)
The Australian Strawberry Breeding Program (ASBP) is a national breeding program, with a focus on Australia’s three major production climates: temperate, subtropical, and Mediterranean.
The program’s aim is to breed new strawberry varieties that are specially adapted to each region and to release superior selections to the industry that meet consumer preferences and are highly profitable for growers with lower production costs.
The Australian Strawberry Breeding Program has been funded by Hort Innovation using the strawberry research and development levy, with co-contributions from the Queensland Government through its Department of Agriculture and Fisheries and funds from the Australian Government.
