Scientific Session of the RAS General Meeting


The efficiency of targeted breeding of new varieties of fruit and berry crops and grapevines with characters that meet modern cultivation technologies and consumer demand depends on the inclusion of donors and sources with prominent agronomic characters in hybridization. This paper emphasizes the importance of studying, preserving, and replenishing genetic collections to accelerate and increase breeding effectiveness and the high significance of donors and sources with identified genes responsible for the presence of characters in new genotypes. The results of improving the assortment of fruit and berry crops to reach a new level of fruit and berry production are shown.
