TomGEM partner on the air

The Valencian TV channel À Punt has recently visited the greenhouses of TomGEM partner Fundacion Cajamar CV (FCValenciana).

With a growing public interest in the challenges of climate change, the TV team interviewed team member Carlos Baixauli who is heading the Department of Agrosustainability. He talked about FCValenciana’s activities within TomGEM and how the project seeks new tomato varieties that can withstand high temperatures caused by global warming.

Within TomGEM, FCValenciana is mainly involved in the cultivation and management of selected tomato lines in greenhouses at high temperature conditions. The partner then selects the plant material bearing fruit under increased temperature and assesses the agronomical behaviour of different tomato lines.
