2 The University of Novi Sad is an educational, scientific and art institution founded by the Republic of Serbia. Educational activities in Vojvodina and Novi Sad have a tradition of more than a few hundred years.The University of Novi Sad was founded on June 28, and it represents an autonomous institution for education, science and arts.The University is comprised of 13 faculties located in the four major cities of the autonomous Province of Vojvodina: Novi Sad, Subotica, Zrenjanin, Sombor.
3 The scope of work at the Faculty covers the following units: The Faculty of agriculture is one of the oldest within the University of Novi Sad. It was founded in 1954.The scope of work at the Faculty covers the following units:Departments:For field and vegetable cropsFor animal scienceFor fruit science, viticulture, horticulture and landscape architectureFor agricultural economicsFor agricultural engineeringFor plant protectionFor water managementFor veterinary medicineThe Faculty organizes the bachelor, MsC and PhD studies.
4 Department of fruit science, viticulture, horticulture and landscape architecture 3 Bachelor studies :Fruit growing and viticultureHorticultureLandscape architecture4 MsC studiesThe experimental fieldFor viticulture: Sremski KarlovciFor pomiculture:Rimski Šančevi and GladnošThe practical work of the students, as well as the scientific – research work
5 EXPERIMENTAL FIELD FOR VITICULTURE AND FRUIT SCIENCE Experimental field is derived from the Regional Institute for viticulture and wine production.This is one of the oldest Institutes at the Faculty of Agriculture.It was founded in 1947, in the Sremski Karlovci, small town, 12km far from Novi Sad, located on the slopes of the Fruska Gora mountain.This Institute was integrated with the Institute of the same name at the Faculty of Agriculture in 1972.From that time, they work together, under the same name
6 EXPERIMENTAL FIELD FOR FRUIT SCIENCE – RIMSKI ŠANČEVI Trials fields at two locations:- 36 ha at Rimski Šančevi(nursery, experimental orchards)- 20 ha at Gladnoš(experimental orchards in future)Pomological colection with over 2000 genotypes
7 EXPERIMENTAL FIELD FOR FRUIT SCIENCE – RIMSKI ŠANČEVI Cultivars released:5 walnuts4 apricots6 columnar apples
8 EXPERIMENTAL FIELD FOR VITICULTURE – SREMSKI KARLOVCI The whole research work in viticulture could be systematized into four sections:Ampelographic research (Ampelographical collection with over 750 genotypes)Grapevine breedingGrapevine physiologyGrapevine agrotechniqueIn experimental field were bred21 new grape cultivars and 3Clones of Riesling italian.Sremski Karlovci (30 ha)
9 EXPERIMENTAL FIELD FOR VITICULTURE – SREMSKI KARLOVCI Depending on the plant breeding objectives, three phases in creating new grape varieties were determined:PHASE 1Objective: Improvement of the quality of cultivated autochthonous grape vine varieities (Smederevka, Kevidinka, Prokupac, Kadarka) by its cross-breeding with top quality Western European grape varieties.
10 EXPERIMENTAL FIELD FOR VITICULTURE – SREMSKI KARLOVCI PHASE 2Objectives: Resistance to low winter temperaturesGrape and wine quality Cross-breedings include hereditary base of Eastern Asian species called Vitis amurensis which is known for its high resistance to low temperatures, tolerance to fungal diseases and short vegetation.
11 EXPERIMENTAL FIELD FOR VITICULTURE – SREMSKI KARLOVCI PHASE 3Objectives: Increase in fungal disease resistanceBetter grape and wine qualityThe hereditary base of North American species highly resistant to Plasmopara viticolu and Oidium tuckeri is expanded by Seyve Villard hybrid and its varieties
