Q: Tell me more about the Georgia Gems program.
A: This is a program to showcase the University of Georgia’s (UGA) Plant Selections and Patented Releases.
The plant varieties have been developed by researchers from the University of Georgia’s College of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences. These plants are then licensed to companies worldwide for production and marketing purposes.
Royalties received from sales are returned to the UGA Research Foundation and used in part to support plant cultivar development programs in UGA’s College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences.
