I am not going to comment on the use of all Caps or Title Case for the 
cultivar names, however I do think that putting the cultivar names in  
boldface is not a good idea from a typrographic point of view. You 
would end up in a lot of cases with lot of black spots (words) 
scattered all over the page. I can tell you from experience that it 
looks terrible and is very distracting.
