UKCPVS Stakeholder Event 2021

The UK Cereal Pathogen Virulence Survey (UKCPVS) was set up to detect and warn the industry about new races of rusts and mildew that are capable of causing disease on previously resistant cereal varieties. Targeted at breeders, crop scientists and technical agronomists, this event reports on recent seedling test results (using samples received during the previous spring) and adult plant nursery tests (using samples tested during the previous summer but received from the season before). The programme also features additional presentations.
