Breeding and propagation

We also perform varietal research. This involves testing new and existing varieties to determine their susceptibility to various pests and diseases, for example thrips in chrysanthemums and viruses in cucumbers. 



One of the factors that must be considered in determining which variety will be most suitable for cultivation is the end product’s intended use. In this context we screen variety and breeding programmes. Our tests often include post-harvest research.
