The U.S. Department of Agriculture has awarded a $477,074 grant to New Mexico State University to support research focused on ways to increase the nutritional quality and yield of the New Mexico chile. The grant was provided by the USDA’s Plant Breeding and Cultivar Development program. Researchers at NMSU are working to develop chile varieties “with improved fruit morphology, nutritional quality and yield through a deeper understanding of the genetic basis underlying these traits,” according to a news release.
