Success of the VitisGen project relies on communication between our Research and Development (i.e., Breeding, Genetics, and Trait Evaluation), Trait Economics, and Extension and Outreach teams. An Industry Advisory Panel is in place to perform evaluations and provide feedback as the project makes headway.
Funding for VitisGen "Accelerating grape cultivar improvement via phenotyping centers and next generation markers" is provided by a Specialty Crop Research Initiative Competitive Grant, Award No. 2011-51181-30635, of the USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture.
