Cavaillon SEV Unit

The Cavaillon Unit is responsible for variety testing of vegetable, fruit, ornamental, aromatic, and oilseed species.

Station Activities

GEVES's Cavaillon-Carpentras Experimental Unit, which is based at the INRA PACA centre, is responsible for variety testing of vegetable and ornamental species in liaison with the Brion station, and aromatic and oilseed species.

It carries out testing which is required for:

  • Registering and protecting varieties
  • Seed certification for soy and sunflower varieties.

This unit is also involved in the conservation of genetic resources (artichoke, solanaceous crops).

Experts who work at this station play a key role in the evolution of protocols and testing methods at national and international levels, through their collaboration with organisations such as the CTPS, the CPVO and UPOV, and also through methodological research projects which are conducted at the station.
