Gene flow in cherry orchards

  title={Gene flow in cherry orchards},
  author={A. R. Granger},
  journal={Theoretical and Applied Genetics},
A survey of Australian cherry orchards identified the cherry cultivars Sunburst, Summit, Merchant, Sam, Sylvia, Tieton, Kordia, Regina, Empress, Nordwunder and Ulster as having low fruit-set associated with poor pollination. Unique orchard sites across Australia where low fruit-set was not a problem for these cultivars were located, and pollen gene-flow-analysis conducted using 6-PGD, GOT, G6PD, GPI, IDH, FDP and SKDH isozyme markers. Pollenisers for the above-mentioned cultivars were… CONTINUE READING
