The overall research efforts for this proposed project is to maintain the plant material (scion and rootstock) that the UCR avocado breeding program currently has as well the personnel required to continue all the research and field activities related with the breeding program. This project will allow us to maintain the program and some of the activities related with the PRR and salinity rootstock screening until the full proposals are submitted to the California Avocado Commission on March 2015.
