EU Prunus network - GC0110STF

The project is part of a wider EU initiative to generate an inventory of Prunus crops important in Europe, to a common format, accessible by computer, and codifying information useful to plant breeders. The UK objective is to participate in this project, advising on harmonisation of names and scoring systems, providing a list of UK accessions and passport data, and, where appropriate, providing agronomic data, such as incompatibility alleles.
