Dr. James Hancock Featured on MSU Today
In the 1960s, MSU horticulturist Stanley Johnston, perhaps best known for developing the Red Haven peach, created both the Northland and Bluehaven blueberry varieties. But few MSU plant breeders have been more successful than AgBioResearch scientist James Hancock. A professor of horticulture and recipient of the 2014 MSU Innovation Center Technology Transfer Achievement Award for excellence in applying innovation to create real-world solutions, Hancock developed three of the world's most widely planted Northern Highbush blueberry varieties: Aurora, Draper and Liberty along with several other successful cultivars throughout his three decades at MSU.
