Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] In Abruzzo, in the province of L'Aquila, in an area close to Mount Morrone, in the Peligna Valley, an investigation was conducted in 2011 to study the degree of compatibility of the two most widespread olive cultivars in the area in question: the "Rustica" and the "Gentile of the Eagle". The objective of the work is to verify the degree of self-compatibility and inter-compatibility of the two cultivars in order to improve the olive-growing productivity of the territory. For the realization of the test, before flowering, we proceeded to the isolation of floriferous branches, properly chosen, through paper bags. Upon reaching about 70% of the entire olive grove's flowering, some shells were exchanged to check the cross-pollination between the cultivars being studied and to check their compatibility; on other small branches the exchange was not carried out to detect the self-pollination of the single cultivars and therefore to verify their degree of self-compatibility. In the test the control was represented by floriferous branches left to free pollination. For each cultivar each thesis was repeated 6 times. Once the fruit was placed and at intervals of about 20 days, the fruits were counted. While awaiting further confirmation, these initial findings reveal that the cov. Rustica and Gentile are compatible with each other. The cv Rustica turns out to be self-incompatible while the cv Gentile dell 'Aquila has shown in some repetitions a partial self-compatibility. Further investigations are therefore necessary to define whether the Gentile dell 'Aquila cv can be self-compatible or not and if the use of other varieties in cultivation can increase the setting of these two native cultivars.
