Title: Fruit Breeding, Adaptability, Production Techniques, and Cultural Practices
Description:
Abstract:
The primary objective of "Fruit Breeding, Adaptability, Production Techniques, and Cultural Practices" is to breed strawberries and grapes for adaptability, quality, and disease resistance; determine adaptability of various fruit cultivars; study production techniques and cultural practices; evaluate alternatives to methyl bromide as to effect on yield and quality of fruit. Collection Organization: Louisiana State University Collection Methodology: In an attempt to increase the number of seed produced each year, crossing of strawberries and germination of seed is being conducted in greenhouses during the cooler months and in an air conditioned room during the hot summer months; seedlings will be evaluated for anthracnose resistance, quality, yield, and general adaptability. Grape cultivars from around the country grown in large containers in a screened house to help prevent vectors from spreading Pierce's disease; crosses will be made and seedlings field tested in an effort to develop a Vinifera type grape adaptable Louisiana conditions.
