ABSTRACT: Blackcurrant is one of the most highly-valued fruit crops in the Republic of Buryatia. Most of blackcurrant varieties from nonspecific geographical areas are worse-adapted to local soil-climatic conditions. Hence, breeding and fruit variety studying along with assessment of its agronomic traits are crucial for the further recommendation of fruit cultivation in the region. The goal of the study is to reveal the availability of better-adapted varieties and enlarge the assortment with new cold tolerant cultivars offering improvements in fruit quality and resistance to diseases.
