Background

December 2019
An extension of the project “Implementation of the ECPGR EVA Network on wheat/barley and vegetable crops (carrot, lettuce and pepper)” was granted by the German Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture with an additional contribution of ca. € 300 000 until November 2022. This extension will enable the newly formed Working Group on Maize to add value to European maize genetic resources within an appropriate framework of public/private partnerships, with adoption of common standards, use of EURISCO and strengthening of the AEGIS collection. In practice, during the project duration a total of 200-500 European genebank accessions of maize will be genotyped and evaluated for biotic and abiotic stresses in multilocation experiments.


The EVA project is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture
for the period 2019-2022.
