Research Project: USDA-ARS Citrus Breeding Trust with New Varieties Development and Management Corporation

Location: Subtropical Insects and Horticulture Research

Project Number: 6618-21000-014-06
Project Type: Trust

Start Date: Jul 01, 2011
End Date: Jun 30, 2016

Objective:
To develop high quality new cultivars of priority fresh citrus market categories.

Approach:
Use conventional hybridization of priority parents, and irradiation of seedy priority selections, with all parents and treated plant material identified in consultation with the NVDMC board. Each year a plan for developing and testing material will be explicitly developed. NVDMC will provide funding for two technicians to greatly accelerate the process and will facilitate testing of material by coordinating plantings in growers' farms.
