A study was conducted to investigate the effect of different storage periods and temperatures on pollen viability in vitro and in vivo in plum genotypes ‘Valerija’, ‘Čačanska Lepotica’ and ‘Valjevka’. In vitro pollen viability was tested at day 0 (fresh dry pollen) and after 3, 6, 9 and 12 months of storage at four different temperatures (4, −20, −...
Conference Paper
Despite numerous deficiencies, the Myrobalan seedling is the most common plum rootstock in the Republic of Serbia. Although a large number of vegetative rootstocks exists worldvide, they are generally not available to producers in our country. In this work, we investigae the influence of four vegetative rootstocks: ʻWavitʼ, ʻWeivaʼ, ʻDoceraʼ and ʻD...
Conference Paper
Although there are more than 6000 plum varieties originated from different wild species from Europe, Asia and North America, there is a constant need to develop new varieties with better characteristics, tolerant/resistant to adverse environmental factors and the most important diseases, in the first place Sharka virus. In addition, one of the most...

Ethylene is the simplest signalling molecule with a hormone-like function that plays a major role in many developmental processes, including ripening of climacteric apple fruit. The allelic polymorphisms of ACS1 and ACO1 genes, encoding for ACC synthase and ACC oxidase, which catalyse the last two steps in the ethylene biochemical pathway, were ana...

Article
Factors such as the stage of ovule maturity and longevity at flowering, when the stigma is able to receive the pollen, are significant in terms of fruit set. Various abnormalities during ovule development can often limit pollination, effective pollination period (EPP) and fruit set. In the plum cultivar 'Pozna Plava' (Prunus domestica L.), in the o...

Self-incompatibility in fruits prevents self-fertilization by recognition and rejection of its own or genetically identical pollen. Occurrence of gametophyte incompatibility is accompanied by irregular pollen tube growth with an abundant accumulation of callose in it. In a three-year period, pollen tube incompatibility in the style of the plum cult...
Preprint
A newly released, late ripening plum cultivar Pozna Plava sets fruit poorly, although it produces high quality fruit. This study aimed to evaluate which factors in the reproductive process could be related to the lack of fruit set. In two consecutive years, establishment of a suitable polleniser and the stage of ovule development at anthesis as wel...

Apples and sweet cherries are generally characterized by self-incompatibility, which is controlled by the multiallelic locus S with gametophytic action. Thus the identification of S-genotype represents crucial information for fruit breeders and growers. The aim of this study was to identify the S-genotype of two apple (‘Čačanska Pozna’ and ‘Čadel’)...
