Project Type: Non-Funded Cooperative Agreement
Start Date: Jan 11, 2016
End Date: Jan 10, 2021
Evaluation of a field planting with an array of Poncirus hybrids and standard cultivars to ultimately identify which genes are associated for use in conventional and transgenic plant improvement.
Assess replicated trial with 8 plants of each of numerous citranges (from a well-characterized mapping population), other poncirus hybrids and standard cultivars. Material will be at USDA/ARS Picos Farm where Huanglongbing (HLB) and Asian citrus psyllid (ACP) are rampant and will be screened in response to natural exposure.
