Manuela HERMEZIU, Radu HERMEZIU

Abstract


National Institute of Research and Development for Potato and Sugar Beet Brasov is working to create potato varieties align to international demand. The new created variety Cezarina  have a very good yield capacity,  is  very  well  adapted  to  soil  and  climate condition of Romania on the base of testing activity on the  network  of  the  State National  Institute for  Testing  and Registration of Varieties (ISTIS) before homologation. The research was carried out between 2016 – 2018 using the classical breeding scheme for potato and applying a specific technology. The starch content and the processing quality were determinated in a specialized laboratory and  late blight (Phytophthora infestans) resistance  and viruses resistance were determinated in fields. The resistance to black wart (Schynchitrium endobioticum) was determinated to National Station of Testing Pojorâta. Variety resistance to diseases, especially late blight, helps to reduce the number of treatment which is cost saving and enviromental protection.
