PW1 omslag

To the question ‘what is the most important focus in your breeding work at the moment’, we received a wide range of answers from the participating breeding and trading companies present at the annual variety presentation days in Emmeloord and its immediate surroundings. Frequently heard responses were, we are looking for resistances, and for some people the focus is mainly on viruses because of the high percentage of virus reduction in recent years.
