Breeding companies

The EVA networks are public-private partnerships and as such, the majority of partners come from the private sector. Partners in the crop-specific EVA networks include breeding companies of all sizes, from small cooperatives to large multinationals, all equally benefiting from their participation in EVA. Breeding companies typically provide in-kind contributions to multiplications and evaluations and perform most of the evaluation field trials.

See below a list of participating breeding companies.
