The new Calibration Manual for Chrysanthemum has been published. It is also published in Japan, on the website of NARO/NCCS.
Since 2016 Naktuinbouw and Japan work together on the harmonization of DUS testing. The aim is to accept and take over Plant Breeders’ Rights reports. Part of this collaboration is the development of joint Calibration Manuals, based on the Japanese Testing Manuals and Dutch Calibration books. This will result in 10 Calibration Manuals.
In 2021 Naktuinbouw and NCSS (residing under NARO, the Japanese Institute for Agricultural Sciences) finished the development of this manual. Both did not have a national manual before.
