Public private partnerships on plants

This project focusses on the improvement of the use of CGN collections. The aim is that users of CGN collections, mostly breeding companies, systematically evaluate CGN collections on agronomically traits which are important for them (mainly disease and pest resistances).

Via this approach it is envisaged that the use of the CGN collections will be further improved.


Screening of CGN collections for specific traits (mostly for pest and disease resistance).


The project will generate data on the presence of resistances in the CGN collection against: cucumber green mottle mosaic virus (CGMMV) in cucumber, tomato spotted wild virus (TSWV) in pepper, Peronospora in spinach, Nasanovia in lettuce, Alternaria/rust/thrips in leek and pink root in onion.
