The 2022 Virus Yellows Symposium in France organised by the Deleplanque group brings together the sugar beet industry stakeholders from across Europe for a comprehensive update on the latest developments in scientific research.
We shared our first research results.
"We started testing resistance in 2015 [...] Our role, with Deleplanque, is to understand the genetic resistance of beets to viruses and to select new resistant hybrids" Axel Schechert, Head of Research & Develpoment Sugarbeet
Now we can announce:
“Today, the genetic resources we have are capable of securing 85% of their potential yield when beet yellows pressure is very high” *
*Results from inoculation trials at Lamotte-Warfusée (Somme) conducted in 2021. Yield may vary +/- 5% depending on the virus inoculated and/or co-inoculated under the Strube Research test protocol.
