Year 2010 National List of Plant Varieties posted on Evira's web site

28.5.2010

<p>The Plant Variety Board appointed by the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry publishes every year a list of plant varieties approved by the Board. Only seeds of varieties included in the National List of Plant Varieties or in the European Community's official List of Plant Varieties can be certified by Evira for marketing in Finland. The plant variety list maintained by EC is a compilation of the national lists of the EU countries.</p>

Varieties are approved for inclusion in the National List of Plant Varieties provided they have an adequate cultivation value and yield novelty value over other varieties. The tests performed to establish the cultivation value ensure the suitability of the variety to the Finnish cultivation conditions.

The Year 2010 Finnish National List of Plant Varieties can now be downloaded from Evira's web site at:
Evira > Webshop > Publications > Finnish Plant Variety Journal > 2010 > National List of Plant Varieties 2010 (pdf, 2,7 Mb)
