There is a strong societal demand and expectation for environmental and health protection. The EU plans to take further decisive steps to limit the use of environmentally harmful chemicals in agriculture. One of the prerequisites for the development of environmentally friendly, profitable and competitive viticulture is the creation and introduction of varieties resistant to the main pathogens, while maintaining good quality. The genetic results of the last decades make it possible to achieve these goals. As a result of the breeding activities of the Research Institute of Viticulture and Oenology in Pécs, 6 white and 1 red varieties have received state approval and another 10 white and 3 red varieties are in the certification process. Community plant variety rights were granted for two innovative resistant grape varieties.
