TAINAN: Newly-developed, multi-disease- and pest-resistant tomato, cucurbit and pepper varieties are ready for advanced, pre-market trials, and will be demonstrated at the Vegetable Breeding Consortium Workshop from 10-12 May in Chinese Taipei.
In response to the growing demand for high quality breeding lines, APSA has partnered with the World Vegetable Centre (WorldVeg) to form a consortium that is offering a unique opportunity to take part in preliminary yield trials (PYT).

The PYT represents an advanced testing stage from which WorldVeg selects entries for its ‘online seed catalog’, giving participating members access to the breeding lines no less than six months before the general public.
As part of the PYT stage, consortium members will be invited to a workshop this May in Tainan, led by the lead chief breeders (see details about workshop breeding lines here) and attended by other WorldVeg scientists and researchers.
Membership to the consortium, which is only offered to APSA members, costs a nominal fee and includes an array of exclusive benefits. See also, Consortium signing ceremony.
