  • 3. Research Activities Fruit quality • antioxidants • texture • quality traits (taste, acidity..)Development Resistance •flowering •abiotic stress •pollination •biotic stress (Venturia •fruit set inaequalis, storage..) Tree architecture •production efficiencies, •yelds and yield predication •correlative effects HIGH QUALITY, SUSTAINABLE FRUIT PRODUCTION Madav – FruitBreedomics Feb 2012
