Conservation, Control and Diffusion of Initial Material Services

Degeneration diseases of fruit trees caused by viruses, viroïdes or phytoplasms, are transmitted during the vegetative multiplication of initial material (wood for the different varieties and stock). The reduction of the impact of these diseases requires the installation of a multiplication chain based on healthy initial plants.In this context, the Farming Systems Section stores, controls and multiplies initial material free of known virus (Virus Free – VF) or of virus having a more important economic incidence (Virus Tested – VT).


135 varieties of apple, pear, plum et cherry trees are currently available within our wood park.


Regular controls by biological tests (indexing by double shield grafting : grafting of an indicator, to say of a plant reacting in a specific way to the sought virus, and of the plant which one wants to define the virological statute on the same stock) or by laboratory analyses (PCR, ELISA) guarantee the quality of the material.
