Research objectives:

  • Breeding of new apple cultivars combining resistance with excellent fruit quality and high and regular cropping that are suited for sustainable integrated and organic fruit production
  • Breeding of columnar-type apples resistant to diseases
  • Development of pre-breeding material – introgression of resistances from wild species
  • Pyramiding and combination of resistances for more durable resistance (fire blight, powdery mildew, scab)
  • Marker assisted selection (Smart breeding)
  • Investigation on the inheritance of the resistance to fire blight of genetic resources of apple
  • Identification and functional characterization of genes associated to resistance to fire blight

Memberships/Activities:

  • Member of the “Sächsische Sortenkommission”
  • Member of the “Fachkommission Kernobst – Arbeitskreis Züchtung“
