UCR has launched the Avocado Variety Improvement Program (AVIP) to advance the existing UCR avocado varietal breeding program as the world’s premiere source of new avocado varieties and center for avocado genetic research. The overall goal is to develop new varieties that will grow consumer demand, deliver consistent high-quality fruit, enhance yield production for growers, and expand environmental adaptability. Additionally, an essential objective will be to improve the overall sustainability of the growing avocado industry by training the next generation of avocado geneticists and breeders.
