Lettuce

EVA Lettuce Network

The EVA Lettuce network is building on successful initiatives and collaborations between public and private partners in the Netherlands as well as on the active work by the ECPGR Leavy Vegetables Working Group.   

Within the EVA project, the partners join their complimentary expertise and capacity to evaluate both wild and cultivated lettuce accessions from diverse origins for disease resistances and important agronomic traits relevant for breeding. The geographic distribution of evaluation sites allows for the gathering of interesting data on environmental effects in field-grown lettuce and will be used together with genotyping data for association studies.
