Variety Testing

Within Naktuinbouw, the Variety Testing Department performs testing on the identity of plant varieties through DUS testing. DUS stands for Distinctness, Uniformity and Stability.

To obtain Plant Breeders’ Rights and/or listing for your variety, varieties are tested on DUS. For varieties of agricultural crops, Value for Cultivation and Use testing (CGO) is also required. In addition, we can help you to identify your material, to determine resistances and to test on varietal trueness and varietal purity.

Helpdesk DUS testing

Within the Variety Testing Department, we have a helpdesk where we can help you to answer all your practical and technical questions about Plant Breeders' Rights and DUS testing in all crops. Our expert staff will be happy to help you. If you would like to be personally advised by one of our staff, please send us an e-mail.
