June 25, 2019
     Professor of V.L. Symyrenko Department of Horticulture, Volodymyr Mezhenskyy took part in the XV Eucarpia Fruit Breeding and Genetics Symposium, which is regularly held by the International Society for Horticultural Science (ISHS). This year the event was hosted in Prague, Czech Republic.

    Volodymyr Mezhenskyy delivered a report on “Progress in Japanese quinces breeding in Ukraine”. Ukraine was represented by one more scientist from the Crimea (Magarach Institute of Viticulture and Winemaking), Svitlana Levchenko, who delivered the poster presentation on “Modern trends of breeding varieties for recreational areas of viticulture”. The five-day symposium was truly international, as nearly 150 scientists and experts from 30 countries across five continents took part in the event (Europe, North and South America, Asia, and New Zealand). The reports reflected current research trends in molecular methods.

    The XV Eucarpia Fruit Breeding and Genetics Symposium was held in the Study and Information Centre (SIC) of the Czech University of Life Sciences (CULS) in Prague. CULS consists of the Faculty of Economics and Management, the Faculty of Agrobiology, the Food and Natural Resources, the Faculty of Engineering, the Faculty of Forestry and Wood Sciences, the Faculty of Environmental Sciences, the Faculty of Tropical AgriSciences, and the Institute of Education and Communication. The participants were given a tour of the premises of the university, as well as the new dendrological garden.

    The last day of the symposium was dedicated to technical tour in field plantations and laboratories of the Research Institute of Horticulture (VŠÚO) in Holovousy and in commercial orchards of Sady Český ráj s.r.o. fruit growing company. The Research Institute of Horticulture in Holovousy was rebuilt in 2012-2015 with the help of the European Union. Several years ago, the general problem of the Institute was the involvement of young scientists. Currently, the Institute has a proper staffing. There are several Ukrainian scientists among the institute employees.
