Main research areas:

NSC “Tairov IVW” is the leading scientific institution for the creation of new varieties of various the direction of use and the only one institution in Ukraine engaged in clonal selection of grapes.The modern program of research “Ecological grapes” is based on the results of the previous ones selection “Resistance” and “Resistance plus Quality”. The main task is to replenish modern grape gene pool with autochthonous and allochton varieties for regional enrichment assortment, creation of a basis for adaptive viticulture of Ukraine and creation of a stable raw material base for Ukrainian winemaking.

Modern directions of activity:

  • formation and improvement of assortment, replenishment and preservation of genetic resources of Ukrainian grapes of introduced and local varieties ;
