Marker-Assisted Breeding (MAB)

Detection of the seedling stage of hybrids with high genetic potential

New molecular markers allow us to detect the genes responsible for disease resistance and fruit quality in your hybrid.

The main benefits of this tool are:

  • Fast: genes are detectable in the year's hybrids
  • Discriminating:  hybrids with high genetic potential are selected and progeny without interest are removed.
  • Accurate: markers allow to cumulate genes and create new variety.
  • benefits: the selection programme is shortened and the maintenance costs of  orchards reduced.
