of Venturia inaequalis virulences
Current status of the project
In winter 2007/8 budwood of all 16 differential hosts has been collected and/or requested to different institutes. Then the “true-to-typeness” of the 16 accessions has been verified molecularly. These tests confirmed that “true-to-type” plant material is available at Agroscope for all the 16 differential hosts.
In the last six years (2009 to 2014) 35 partners in 18 nations received material to establish a differential orchard.
New partners are welcome to join the network.
