What was it all about?

Running from late 2013 to the start of the 2016/17 financial year, among its work this largely technical project:

  • Looked at molecular techniques to facilitate the industry’s breeding program, developing new genetic marker tests, associated with self-fertility, to assist evaluation of new almond lines

  • Collaborated with international laboratories working on almond genetics, gaining access to a wider range of markers

  • Tested new scions for improved nutritional value (free fatty acid profiles, polyphenols and vitamin E content)

  • Began testing of almond ‘waste’ products as potential pharmaceutical products.
