p>The ‘Žutica’ represents the most common Montenegrin olive varieties mainly used for the production of olive oil and green and black fruit canning. Traditionally, the olive plants have been propagated vegetatively, and a small level of genetic polymorphism is expected among clones of the same variety. This topic was only partially studied in the M...

The most important olive (Olea europaea L.) variety in Montenegro is ‘Žutica’ which represents 65% of total olive population of the coastal area, and 98% of the olive trees in the southern sub-region of Bar. A total of 42 trees of olive variety ‘Žutica’ from the coastal area was selected and evaluated of morphological and technological traits durin...

Centuries-old generative reproduction, relatively favourable agro-ecological conditions, natural selection, and anthropogenic roles have significantly influenced the formation of a rich, heterogeneous population of common walnuts in Montenegro. This variability can be exploited by applying a positive selection of genotypes that would have good ecol...
Conference Paper
A maritime and continental specimen of pomegranate fruits have been collected at the two different locations: a) Adriatic seaside (near Bar, Montenegro), and b) near Novi Sad (Serbia),respectively. Since they were growing under different agroecological conditions, the aim of this study was to determine the content of total polyphenols, tannins, fla...

As olive is the most widespread fruit tree in Montenegro, eventual detection of the bacterium Xylella fastidiosa would cause great economic losses, besides implying the implementation of a permanent monitoring campaign. This is especially due to the importance of early detection of the bacteria as well as its vector(s) for the timely implementation...

For the purpose of the morphometric characterization and differentiation of local sheep breeds that belong to the group of breeds called Pramenka or Zackel, two Slovenian (Bela Krajina and Istrian Pramenka) and four Montenegrin sheep breeds (Bardoka, Sjenička, Pivska Pramenka, and Zeta Žuja) were studied. The variation of morphometric measures and...

Thousands of years of tradition of olive cultivation in Montenegro is witnessed with the ‘Old olive’ estimated to be more than 2000 years old. ‘Old olive’ draws attention to its genetic potential and the relation to the closest grown olive cultivars. Therefore, the aim of this paper was to give the basic description of ‘Old olive’ (through 20 morph...
Article
The intensive exchange and diffusion of plant material over the whole Mediterranean Basin including the East Adriatic region, has contributed to the confusion in denomination of olive varieties, and formation of a large number of synonyms and homonyms. In the present study, we report on clonal diversity and genetic relationships among a total of 19...
Article
‘Žutica’ is the most widespread olive variety of Montenegro, accounting for as much as 98% of olive trees in the southern part of Montenegrin coastal area – Bar subarea. The primary purpose of variety ‘Žutica’ is olive oil production due to its small fruits and high oil content, although it is also much appreciated as a table olive, prepared in loc...
Article
‘Arbequina’ is recommended as a cultivar of low vigour, early entry to the productive period, self-fertile and of high and regular fertility, suitable for growing in intensive plantations. The first high-density orchard to be planted with this cultivar in Montenegro was planted in 2006 in the area of Podgorica. Since 2010, new orchards have been pl...
Article
In western Balkan countries, the common fig is an underutilized fruit species which thrives along the eastern Adriatic coast and islands. Its cultivation occupies special niches at local levels and is maintained by cultural preference and traditional practices. In order to enhance fig investigation as an important constituent of a sustainable agric...

Morphological characteristics of flowers and flowering were studied in three main pomegranate varieties grown in Montenegro: 'Slatki barski', 'Šerbetaš' and 'Dividiš meke kore'. The varieties grown in three different locations: Dobra Voda and Tomba in the Bar coastal area, and in Golubovci area near Podgorica, were represented with five trees per l...

Žutica, the major variety on Montenegrin Coast, belongs to the gro­­up of olive varieties for oil production, with oil content in average above 21%. During the research of the properties of Žutica variety, the existence of variability in the oil content was recorded. In order to determine the degree of the variability of oil content within this var...

Olive cultivar 'Zutica' is grown on the Montenegrin coast more than 2000 years. During that period, many different individuals according to the phenotype have evolved due to different environmental conditions. The level of morphological variation has not been analyzed. The degree of clonal variation, observed within this cultivar is presented in th...

Crnica is the second important olive variety on Montenegrin Coast, after variety Žutica. It is the most present in the area of Boka-kotorska sub region, and in lesser extent in the area of Budva-sub region of Bar. Crnica variety is for dual purposes of the fruit, for table use and for oil production. Long period of cultivation and potential mixing...

In this study, we compared the capacity of morphological and molecular markers for assessing the varietal identity and connection of 16 selected clones/accessions of three local varieties: Crnica, Lumbardeška and Barkinja, from Montenegro. A study of morphological parameters showed differences between the tested clones, especially for degree of imp...

Montenegro is a small country bordering the Adriatic Sea with the coastline of 293.5 km, and topography characterized by large hilly mountainous areas with distinctive relief and only small areas of lowland. The terrains of olive growing areas are either sloped with very high inclination or foothills of the mountain massifs of Orjen, Lovcen and Rum...

A more than two thousand years of tradition in olive growing and a range of autochthonous varieties make a good base for high-quality olive oil production in Montenegro. Variety of different cultivars or biodiversity of olive trees is the source of value which has to be recognized and preserved. This diversity is also of economical importance beca...

The efficiency of an olive breeding program is directly related to the time between crossing and first bearing of the forthcoming seedlings, i.e. the length of the juvenile period. Harvesting the seeds as soon as possible is one of the factors that can contribute to shorten this period, if a high percentage of developing seeds is ensured. In the pr...

The paper presents a protocol ensuring germination of more than 80% of olive seeds in 30 days. However, percentage of germination varied among the cultivars and harvest times. Rise in temperature from 14º - 25ºC 18 days from beginning of stratification, i.e. period upon seed dormancy, stimulates seed germination.

Cilj predloženog istraživanja: - Razviti referentnu bazu podataka genotipova smokve u regionu Jadrana na temelju dobijenih mikrosatelitskih profila, - Odrediti genetičku zavisnost između dva potencijalno različita genetska izvora (sjeverni i južni Jadran) na osnovu rezultata genetskih analiza; na osnovu ovih analiza biće moguće odrediti da li je u prošlosti bilo razmjene biljnog materijala između ovih regiona i predvidjeti razvoj sortne strukture. Dobijeni rezltati će pokazati genetsku srodnost između lokalnih i introdukovanih sorti, kao i distribuciju alela u odnosu na različite, geografski udaljene gen centre ove vrste.
