Scientific research directions:

Creation, study and selection of clonal and seed rootstocks of apple, pear, plum, cherry plum, cherry and sweet cherry trees which are disease resistant and which meet the intensive fruit growing requirements.

Working out propagation technologies of fruit crops high-quality planting material which ensure the genetic stability of the varieties.

       Rooting of apple tree PB-4 clonal rootstock

Offers to production and amateur horticulture:             

Clonal rootstocks of apple tree (PB-4, 62-396, 54-118, 106-13), plum tree (VPK-1, VVA-1), cherry and sweet cherry (VSL-2, Izmailovski), which ensure getting stable yields of high goods quality and decreasing growth vigor of inoculated trees by 30-50 % compared with the seed rootstocks.

Seed rootstocks of pear tree ((AI-1), plum tree (AD 9/19, AD 3/5), sweet cherry (S-43), adapted to the conditions of the Republic.

Technologies: Propagations of apple tree clonal rootstocks by layers in a mother plantation; plum, cherry and sweet cherry clonal rootstocks propagations from green cuttings; production of annual and biennial branched apple, pear, plum, cherry and sweet cherry seedlings on clonal rootstocks for intensive orchards ensuring planting material increase by 20-25 %.

         Certified high-quality planting material of registered and promising varieties of fruit crops.
