And on May 5, CIV Breeders Michelangelo Leis and Jacopo Diamanti will present at the "State of the art and future prospects in genetic improvement in strawberry" panel to discuss the consortium’s work in strawberry varieties that can provide high quality fruits that can be grown with low energy requirements, low labor cost and low environmental impact.
