General objectives of genetic improvement of eggplant

The main objectives of the genetic improvement of eggplant is based on known work on varieties as long, 1/2 long, round and rootstocks.

Our genetically enhanced varieties are focused on quality and productivity features.

Our research and development tasks are oriented to target markets in America, Europe, Middle East and Maghreb.

Long

We carry out breeding on eggplant varieties type Long with the strategy of gradual introduction of virus resistances, and improved productivity, furthermore taking into account those agronomic traits of interest to the consumer.

Long
1/2 Long

We carry out breeding on eggplant varieties type 1/2 Long with the strategy of gradual introduction of virus resistances, and improved productivity, furthermore taking into account those agronomic traits of interest to the consumer.

1/2 Long
Rootstocks

We carry out breeding on eggplant varieties type Rootstock with the strategy of gradual introduction of virus resistances, and improved productivity, furthermore taking into account those agronomic traits of interest to the consumer.
