Catalogues are based on the registration of plant varieties in EU countries after they have been technically examined there and notified to the Commission. They are published in the Official Journal.
Variety registration is a precondition for the certification of seed.
To be listed, varieties must meet standards on:
- Value for cultivation and use - for agricultural crops.
This value is based on:
- Resistance to harmful organisms;
- Response to the environment;
- Quality characteristics.
