Fruit Crops in the Alpine Region

The activities of the ‘Fruit Crops in the Alpine Region’ Research Group are based on the development of innovative and sustainable fruit production and storage systems. The main research topics are (i) the creation of new varieties of apricots and pears to improve disease- and pest-resistance, fruit quality and productivity; (ii) the development of pest- and disease-control methods to reduce the use of pesticides; and (iii) determination of the factors influencing fruit quality pre- and post-harvest, to reduce the impacts of climate change.
