Bio/Research

This program mainly aims at developing new varieties of peach, plum, nectarine and cherries to meet the Ontario fruit industry needs. Apart from continuing traditional breeding that is in place for a long time at Vineland Station, my program also will incorporate recent advances in cell culture and molecular genetics to complement fruit breeding. One of the near term objective is to find ways to control the spread of plum pox virus by utilizing the genetic resources that are available here as well as in other tree fruit breeding programs in the US and Europe.
