The main focus is the interaction of the genetic material with the environment and the olive grove management. In the National Olive Germplasm Bank, with over 100 varieties, selections from Greece and other countries are constantly added, for the preservation of plant genetic resources for protection of biodiversity and for their characterization(productivity, quality, adaptation to environmental conditions) and their utilization for the restructuring of Greek olive growing but also for the creation of new varieties through breeding. In collaboration with many agricultural organizations, multiyear field trialsare carried out on the impact of climate change on olive growing.
