Brazil: New Tahiti lemon has superior productivity

Brazilian citriculture gains three important new materials, two varieties of orange and one of Tahiti lemon. Limão Tahiti BRS EECB IAC Ponta Firme has a productivity of 80 t/ha, 242% higher than the average for the state of São Paulo, the largest Brazilian producer, while retaining high quality levels. The BRS IAC FCC Alvorada orange tree is versatile and can be used for juice or  fresh consumption. Navelina XR is the first orange tree resistant to the bacterium that causes yellowing (citrus variegated chlorosis, CVC).

The three citrus varieties are the result of research in partnership between Embrapa, the Coopercitrus Credicitrus Foundation ( FCC ) and the Sylvio Moreira Citriculture Center ( CCSM ), linked to the Agronomic Institute ( IAC ).
