ROELOFARENDSVEEN, Netherlands: The Netherlands Inspection Service for Horticulture Naktuinbouw has announced at the forthcoming IPM Essen show, which will be held at Messe Essen January 27th -30th in Essen, Germany.
In a joint stand with the German and English research stations for DUS testing and the Community Plant Variety Office, the company will put its Naktuinbouw Variety Testing in the spotlight.
Naktuinbouw staff will be on hand to provide information on the full range of ornamental and arboricultural plants from Anthurium to Zantedeschia. Before Plant Breeders’ Rights can be granted, a variety has to prove that it is distinct from all other varieties, uniform and that it remains stable during repeated propagation (DUS). Compliance with these requirements is assessed during a growing trial by examination offices such as Naktuinbouw. At the IPM, Naktuinbouw will provide all necessary information regarding application, requirements for submission and the duration and research fees.
The ´Plant Breeders’ Rights in Europe ´ stand is located in Hall 2, number 2B23.
