OUR MISSION

NewBreed knowledge

NewBreed was established with a mission to translate the Hebrew University’s tomato knowledge to superior marketable varieties.

 

Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum) – the subject of our company – is a favorite vegetable crop for which a tremendous amount of genomic knowledge is available. Tomato is the #1 crop in the eployment of wild species natural genetic variation for the breeding of cutting edge commercial varieties with new traits of productivity and fruit nutritional value.

Better Together

ToBRFV Resistant Rootstock and Scions by NewBreed Ltd.

NewBreed Ltd. was established by Professor Dani Zamir with a mission to translate the Hebrew University’s tomato knowledge to breed processing, fresh market, and cherry #tomato hybrids. Our germplasm base includes thousands of mutants, varieties from around the world and advanced introgressions populations involving tomato wild species. In 2014 tomatoes in Israel started to suffer from the Tomato Brown Rugose Fruit Virus (#ToBRFV), which is a relative of the TMV and was characterized and named in 2016 by a Jordanian group.

The NewBreed team started #breeding for virus resistance and found that the old TMV resistance gene TM1 confers resistance to the #ToBRFV. TM1 was later replaced by breeders with TM2 which provides better protection for the tomatoes and as result modern hybrids do not carry TM1. Our #breeding team re-introduced TM1 to cherry, cluster and single fruit hybrids and now have a family of resistant hybrids. It should be noted that TM1 is not a ‘silver bullet’ against the virus: genetic background affects the level of resistance and therefore it is necessary to select germplasm that maximizes the TM1 protection. In addition, TM1 does not protect the fruits from virus induced blotchy ripening and thus it is necessary to select for genetic backgrounds with more homogeneous red fruit color.

#ToBRFV can survive in soils making it persistent threat for glasshouse cultivation. To improve the productivity and vigor of tomato varieties they are often grafted on ‘strong’ rootstock. However, there are no #ToBRFV resistant rootstocks on the market yet. When grown in virus infected soils as susceptible rootstock supports virus replication that can break the resistance of resistance scion. We are happy to share that our team developed a resistant vigorous rootstock “YOGEV” that together with our large fruited resistant scions, such as NBK 20227, can help tomato growers in the fight against the virus. This grafting combination has been tested for the past three years in Israel by commercial growers and the results make us proud to offer a “better together” #ToBRFV resistance that combines NewBreed rootstock and scions.

GENETIC RESOURCES

The Hebrew University of Jerusalem - Agriculture faculty

NewBreed translates the vast tomato genetic resources and expertise that was developed in the laboratory of Prof. Dani Zamir at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem to superior F1 hybrids. Genomic information of 3500 mutants, 10,000 varieties from around the world and introgression populations involving seven tomato wild species are being used for classical breeding of varieties for all segments of the tomato market: greenhouse cultivation, open filed production for the fresh market and the processing industry as well as pot tomatoes for decoration and for urban agriculture.
