Since 1 July 2011 West Mediterranean Agricultural Research Institute has been studying a Project called “Improvement and Usage of New Mandarin Verieties for Export Market”. Turkish Citrus Promotion Group went to Antalya for planting new mandarin types which mature very early,early and late period which were provided via mutation. Mandarin types which were produced after long and hard works were planted in their special fields. By this way the adaptation process has started.
Following that , the blossoms and first fruit will be observed and the first data will be gathered. It’s hoped that this will help the institute to give the necessary information and advise about the new types in the project to the producers.
