The AppleGenie team has been together for their penultimate projectmeeting on the 25th and 26th of October 2016 at the IRTA facility in Girona, Spain.
Recent results from a diversity of experiments have been discussed, focussed on the development of molecular tools for thinning practice and bitter pit handling.
Promising results regarding the selection of molecular indicators for bitter pit risk assessment have been presented.
Forthcoming experiments are focussed on validation of the molecular indicators.
The next, final meeting will take place in Wageningen, The Netherlands and is planned for February 2017.
