General objectives of genetic improvement of tomato

The main objectives of tomato genetic improvement are based on the work on varieties like Daniela, Saladette, Coctail and Cherry

Our genetically enhanced varieties show resistance to the following viruses: TYLCV (Ty1, Ty3), TMV, V, F123, N, SW5.

Our research and developing efforts are focused on the following objective markets: Spain, Portugal, Italy and Morocco.

Round

We carry out breeding on tomato varieties type round (type Daniela like) with the strategy of gradual introduction of virus resistances, and improved productivity, furthermore taking into account those agronomic traits of interest to the consumer.

Round
Coctail

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

Coctail
Cherry

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

Resistances that we work on Tomato

One of the main strategies of our genetic improvement program has been the gradual use of resistances to viruses in our genetic material without forgetting those agronomic characters of commercial interest.

Lines of Tomato

To obtain tomato lines, we use classic genetic improvement methods and perform resistance tests in natural environmental conditions of high possesion vector.
