Almond Pollination Trials

Perennial Horticulture Development Project Kabul, Afghanistan The PHDP has collected some 99 clones. To test all the combinations for incompatibility, there would need to be nearly 10,000 individual crosses. There are many clones collected which have little immediate commercial value, so the work on testing incompatibility will be less than that. The work will also be easier when the germplasm is collected into the reference collections. However, due to the total lack of knowledge in the country about pollination compatibility, it was considered an urgent priority for PHDP, and a simple trial at three sites was designed, using the original in situ trees from which the budwood for the germplasm collection was collected.
