Purity of vegetable seed: The imperative in breeding Brassicaceae

The main task of every vegetable breeder is to preserve the existing assortment and to select new varieties and hybrids. The breeding of Brassicaceae, as well as breeding of every other biennial culture is a serious, hard and Puritytime consuming work. Every flower has to be treated manually and the selection period is doubled.

Brassicaceae are cross-pollinating vegetables and it is necessary to keep them isolated from unwanted hybridizations performed by insects. The crossing is performed manually with the surveillance of technicians and breeders.

In this way, the Institute for Vegetable Crops preserves the purity of obtained seed and the quality not only of Brassicaceae family of the whole assortment.
