Research Project: Identification and Development of Olive Knot Resistant Olive Cultivars for Commercial Production in California

Location: Crops Pathology and Genetics Research

Project Number: 2032-22000-015-13
Project Type: Reimbursable

Start Date: Oct 01, 2012
End Date: Jun 30, 2015

Objective:
Identify commercially viable olive knot resistant olive genotypes.

Approach:
1)Clonally propagate all 210 Olive accessions maintained in the USDA National Clonal Germplasm repository at Davis, CA and grow out 15 clones of each accession. 2)Evaluate all trees produced in obj. 1 for resistance to the olive knot pathogen, Pseudomonas savastanoi pv savastanoi. 3)Conduct field evaluation of olive knot resistant genotypes shown to possess superior olive knot resistance in obj. 2.
