How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
Bloom date (BD) in peach is determined by the dynamic relationship between chilling (CR) and heat requirement (HR) fulfilment during dormancy. Understanding these thermal requirements would enable breeders to adapt new cultivars to variable climates. Among the three traits, HR is the least investigated, with the genetic variability in peach germpla...
Chilling requirement (CR) is an important agronomic trait in peach (Prunus persica L.) to ensure adequate flowering and fruit set. To date, several CR quantitative trait loci (QTLs) have been mapped in peach. Despite being heavily researched, there are no validated DNA tests for this trait in the U.S. breeding germplasm. Breeders need a DNA tool to...
