The avocado agriculture industry at National and International levels is confronted to low yields which are due among other aspects to the high costs of products originated by the height of the tree as well as its foliage which difficults the harvest, low cultural customs of the harvesters and to the overrating of the phyto sanitary control. This has been originated by the actual research trends over avocado at all world level since the research has been oriented to the obtention of dwarf tree varieties with the advantages that this offers. The Salvador Sanchez Colin CICTAMEX Foundation is developing a genetic improvement program with the support of the Instituto Nacional de Investigaciones Nucleares (ININ) by means of the pacific uses of nuclear energy on fruits principally the avocado.
