VRDS (Vegetable Research and Development Station) Buzau has tradition for acclimatization of new vegetable species,;there being obtained new varieties of Momordica charantia, Cucumis metuliferus, Cichorium crispum, Cichorium;latifolium, Momordica conchinchinensis, etc. Biodiversity conservation and crop extention for the new species through;acclimatization and breeding have become a major necessity nowadays. The aim of this study was to give special;attention to the acclimatization of a new species, e.g. Lophanthus anisatus. It is a native to Asia, is spread in almost all;world crops, known by other names (Agastache foeniculum, Lophantus agastache) and its food, medicinal and;melliferous properties are widely recognized by scientists but, however, until now there has not been cultivated in;Romania. The research started in 2010 with the documentation and purchase of the basic genetic material (seeds,;seedlings). After completing these steps, in 2012 were cultivated the first purchased genotypes. After the first year of;study in the crop was observed that there were no major phenotypic differences between cultivars. Genotype L3, from;Bulgaria, demonstrated higher uniformity in terms of the main characters expressiveness and high adaptability to;environmental conditions. In descending, 2013-2014 was cultivated and studied only this genotype, to avoid;contamination by pollination with other cultivars. The results are positive, the species has adapted very well, can be;grown successfully in Romania. Research will continue for genetic stabilization and marked characteristics for;distinctibility in order to approval and registration at SIVTR (State Institute for Variety Testing and Registration).
