Breeding roses on the African continent


Titre : Breeding roses on the African continent

Pays : Ethiopie

Dates : Start date : 1 June 2009 // End date : 17 April 2013

Identification projet : NL-KVK-27378529-PSI09ET04

Programme : Private Sector Investment programme (PSI)

Currently, 40% of the worldwide cut rose production takes place in Africa. However, up to 2009 all rose varieties are bred in Western Europe. These varieties are not adapted to the climatologic circumstances in Africa, mostly resulting in lower prices for the African roses at the international markets. This project will introduce rose breeding to Ethiopia, leading to improved new varieties in terms of resistance, yield and vase-life. As such, all rose growers in the regions close to the equator will benefit from these new varieties, strengthening their international competitiveness. A joint venture will be started in Debre Zeit between the Dutch rose breeding and production company De Ollies B.V. and Olij Roses Ethiopia PLC.
