Release of breeding material by the Foundation for Agricultural Plant Breeding

Summary

Release of breeding material by the Foundation for Agricultural Plant Breeding

One of the aims of the Foundation for Agricultural Plant Breeding is aiding and supplying information to the breeders of field crops in the Netherlands. Plant material is put at the disposal of the breeders partly free of charge, partly for a nominal fee.

In 1951 the release of hybrid populations of cereals by the Institute of Agricultural Plant Breeding was continued. Seed obtained by crossing, young potato clones, and initial material to be used in lupin breeding were issued. In 1952 hybrid flax populations selected for rust resistance were released as well as second year's lines of oats and barley and tetraploid sugar- beet material.

Thus in the spring of 1951 and the spring of 1952 respectively 75000 and 85000 potato hybrid seeds and 13000 and 30000 potato clones, raised in aphid-free green-houses, were distributed. The material consisted in hybrids involvingSolanum demissum. Many hybrids descended from the well-known variety Bintje.
