Program emphasis

Citrus triploid breeding and fruit evaluation. 1) Production of citrus triploid plants by interploidy crosses for seedless breeding; 2) Evaluation of agronomic traits and fruit quality of promising triploid lines in our triploid breeding program; 3) to reveal the formation mechanisms of some special traits in triploid plants.
