Wheat and Barley

EVA Wheat & Barley Network

The EVA Wheat and Barley network is the European extension of a successful national evaluation network in Germany (EVA-II), which has been operational since 2001 as a public-private partnership to evaluate wheat and barley accessions in German collections. As the biggest EVA network, EVA Wheat and Barley divides its activities into three geographic zones across Europe (Nordic, Central and South zones) and evaluates spring and winter barley, spring and winter wheat as well as durum wheat accessions, mostly for biotic stress responses in field evaluations.  

Partners in the EVA Wheat and Barley network will also contribute to the Horizon2020 project AGENT (Activated GEnebank NeTwork), which provides funds for a third evaluation cycle until 2024, extending beyond the current project.
