Variability of wild olives (Olea europaea subsp. europaea var. sylvestris) analyzed by agro-morphological traits and SSR markers
The genetic diversity of wild olive trees sampled from eight different sites from two provinces of Andalusia (Cadiz and Jaen), Southern Spain, was evaluated by means of agro-morphological traits andExpand

Phenotypic Correlations among Agronomic Traits in Olive Progenies
Thirteen characters were evaluated over four years in progenies from a diallel cross among the olive (Olea europaea L.) cultivars 'Arbequinaʼ, 'Frantoioʼ, and 'Picualʼ to determine if phenotypicExpand

Oil composition of advanced selections from an olive breeding program
Fifteen genotypes coming from crosses between the cultivars Arbequina, Frantoio and Picual were selected on the basis of their agronomic characteristics in a breeding program initiated in 1991. InExpand

Variability of fatty acid composition in olive (Olea europaea L.) progenies
Seedlings from crosses between the olive cultivars "Arbequina", "Frantoio" and "Picual" were evaluated for fatty acid composition over two consecutive years. Gas chromatography was used for analyzingExpand

High Susceptibility of Olive Cultivar FS-17 to Alternaria alternata in Southern Spain.
Traditional olive orchards in Spain have been planted at a density of 70 to 80 trees per ha with three trunks per tree. During the last decade, the hedgerow orchard, in which planting density isExpand

Pre-breeding for resistance to Verticillium wilt in olive: Fishing in the wild relative gene pool
Abstract This study aimed to identify new sources of resistance to Verticillium wilt in olive. We evaluated various types of genotypes: wild olive trees (Olea europaea subsp. europaea var.Expand

Selection for fruit removal force and related characteristics in olive breeding progenies
In the present work we discuss the possibility of breeding olives for suitability to mechanical harvesting. Variability in fruit removal force (FRF), and its correlation with fruit weight (FW) andExpand
