New avocado rootstocks are high-performing and disease-tolerant
Date:4/27/2012

for a general decline of avocado trees reported in California since the late 1920s and 1930s. When PRR is controlled, avocado yields, growth, and fruit quality increase dramatically, resulting in increased profitability for growers.

"The ultimate long-term objective of the UCR avocado research program is to find a truly PRR-resistant rootstock for avocado," said Douhan, who joined UCR in 2005. "This objective has not yet been realized, but we have been making good progress and our germplasm foundation is continuing to broaden."

Douhan is confident that with the use of more modern molecular tools research will proceed faster in understanding many aspects of avocado genetics and the genomic diversity associated with PRR and other important agronomic traits.
