Description: In an Upper Peninsula Michigan test of simple design, white spruce of a Beachburg, Ontaria provenance grew 17.5 percent taller than white spruce from the Ottawa N.F. The paper describes how to convert such tests to low-cost, low-risk, highly flexible improvement programs. The approach is applicable to other species of low priority.
Keywords: White spruce, Lake States region, genetic gains, seed production areas, multigeneration breeding
