Cultivar Evaluation Manual

The specific fruit and tree characteristics evaluated with Culteva™ are well documented in the Provar Evaluation Manual which is supplied with the app for paying subscribers. This document is supplied in PDF format, updated every year, and may be printed for reference use in the field.

The Provar Evaluation Manual currently supports the following crop types: Apple, Peach, Nectarine, Apricot and Plum. We would like to encourage you to participate in the curating and amendment of the standards and practices as defined in the evaluation manual. If you are interested in evaluating other crop types using Culteva™, help us to define the characteristics and measurements that are unique to the crop and we will add it to the evaluation manual, then integrate it into Culteva™.

We believe that standardisation will greatly benefit your evaluation program and allow for more accurate and comparable data, thus we do not currently provide for recording custom characteristics.

Frequently Asked Questions

Culteva software is developed by evaluators for the evaluation of new varieties by means of easy collection of phenotypic data, measurements, images and notes on a mobile app during orchard and laboratory observations.
