Press Release AppleGenie

Predictive diagnostics based on gene expression for rapid assessment of crop load programs and bitter pit disorder in apple fruit.


Ineffective chemical thinning and the storage disorder named bitter pit lower the production of high quality apples in Europe. The recently started European project AppleGenie will develop products to overcome these bottlenecks in apple horticulture.

      
This AppleGenie project is a SME driven project. It means that development of practical tools will be assured. The project aims at crossing the bridge between science and practice. Prestigious research institutes as IRTA (Spain), Plant and Food Research (NZ), CTIFL (France) and the University of Bologna combine their efforts with end users and high end consultancy providers that are very well involved in horticultural practice. NSure Wageningen coordinates the project as a whole.
