Each year the SEV studies up to 2500 new plant varieties including 60 field crop species, 60 vegetable species and 275 ornamental species, as well as fruit species and vines in collaboration with INRA.
Three types of evaluations are carried out in accordance with EU regulations:
Furthermore, the SEV carries out methodological testing, generally in collaboration with public or private research companies. This research aims to improve methods used to describe and evaluate varieties. The SEV also participates in the training of French and international experts.
The SEV’s 130 agents are spread over 5 main testing stations (350 hectares of testing surface, and 1 hectare of greenhouses). In addition, the SEV has a further 7 smaller units that are associated with INRA testing stations. The SEV management is based at GEVES’s headquarters in Beaucouzé, including the Secretary General of the CTPS.
