Breeding research

 The main current research projects are:


Interspecific hybridization  including in vitro pollination, embryo rescue techniques, polyploidization and in situ hybridization (Interspecific hybridization  crossing polygon)

Breeding for resistance against Fusarium, Botrytis and Erwinia

Development of molecular marker technology for indirect selection (Lilium, Tulipa, Hypericum and Gerbera)

Breeding of Lilium, Tulipa, Narcissus, Iris and Zantedeschia (in various projects in cooperation with a number of companies) and other ornamental crops.
