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