Secondary objectives are:

  • To develop molecular markers for a more effective selection of cultivars for processing and fresh market
  • To gain new knowledge on metabolites in berries and connection between molecular markers and metabolites
  • To gain new knowledge on connection between metabolites and key characters in the berries, and quality and storability of berries and berry products
  • To develop a targeted and effective system (tool) for testing and selecting berry cultivars for processing and fresh market

To find climatically adapted cultivars with good growing characteristics for use in processing and fresh market
