Summary

Marcel van Diemen at Vitalis Organic Seeds explains how the company uses the whole range of the cucurbitaceae family for crossing. That way, they have access to a variety of desired characters for breeding purposes. Laboratory techniques such as markers are then used to take the breeding process forward.
He further guides the viewer through the whole process of breeding, from an initial cross made by hand-pollinating a flower, through discussion on how specific varieties address market requirements and on virus resistance to seed cleaning and quality parameters for high germination.
