Title : New trends in table grapes breeding


Will Update soon


Agronomist engineer and phD in agricultural research, I lead the table grapes team of IMIDA, public institute of agrarian research. We developed a genetic breeding program to obtain new seedless table grapes varieties with the use of biotechnological techniques such as in vitro culture and molecular markers for obtaining hybrids; in the field we use hormonal growth regulators (PGR). Breeder of 17 new varieties of which around 1.000 ha are grown in Spain; the first commercial farms are being planted in Chile, Peru and Australia; and in coming years in South Africa and Brazil; 2 of the varieties have powdery mildew resistance genes, we are now focused on biological agriculture. Speaker at international congresses in Mexico, Chile, Italy, Germany, Brazil, Argentina, Peru and Greece; and poster in Australia, Hong Kong and France.
