Varieties group






tba - to be assigned ( - )


Varieties are the first step to produce a tobacco complying both with growers’ expectation (resistances to bioagressors , yield , maturity , quality …) and with market criteria.


AERET group aims for proposing European tobacco growers a panel of varieties that could correspond to their agro-pedo-climatic conditions. The process of introducing new varieties in tobacco farms could be divided in two parts. Tobacco breeders work on a fundamental level to provide new varieties. Then, in each area , trials are led by experimenters to evaluate the adaptation of new varieties to local conditions. AERET modelled its work on this process.

 

Varieties group is divided in two sub-groups :

  • each year , tobacco breeders send a list of relevant varieties to the coordinator. An annual index of varieties, compiled by the coordinator, is at the disposal of persons experimenting the varieties in each producing area ;
  • experimenters share each year the results obtained in varieties trials.

In order to compare the results obtained in different areas, « AERET checks » have been chosen:

  • K 326 for aromatic flue-cured
  • ITB 33024 for filler flue-cured
  • TN 90 for Burley

Tobacco breeders taking part in AERET are listed below :

  • BERGERAC SEED & BREEDING - France
  • HRVATSKI DUHANI d.d. - Croatia
  • Institute of Soil Science and Plant Cultivation - State Res. Inst. - Poland
  • NiCoTa GmbH - Germany
  • SOTA - Switzerland
