TWO NEW APRICOT VARIETIES OBTAINED BY INTA IN MENDOZA
The sowing of the pits was made in 1953, at the Agricultural Experiment Station of Mendoza; since 1958, successive rigourous selections of the plants were made, rejecting the undesirable ones. From all this material, there appeared two outstanding samples, quite interesting for their quality, resistance to transportation and keeping conditions of the fruit, besides some other new differential characteristics.
Inta has begun this year to distribute the first multiplication of plants among the producers interested in their growing. Also, numerous plants have been already grafted for their propagation in 1969.
