Origin & Breeding History: 'Imposa' (experimental designation Ceb 04928) is the result of a cross made in 1996 between '94012' x 'Pistache' at Lelystad, The Netherlands. In 1997, a single plant was selected in the F2, followed by years of line selection, replicated yield trials and multiplication. Selection criteria included yield, resistance to disease, resistance to lodging and earliness in maturity.
Tests & Trials: Test and trials were conducted in Barrhead, Alberta during the summers of 2008 and 2009. Plots consisted of 4 rows with a row length of 4.5 meters and a row spacing of 0.2 meters. Plots were spaced 0.3 meters apart. There were 4 replicates. Measured characteristics were based on a minimum of 10 measurements per year per variety.
